The Arrests

The arrests were made Wednesday after search warrants were executed simultaneously at 4 North St., Douglas, and 502 Douglas St., Uxbridge. The search warrants were the culmination of a long investigation by the Douglas and Uxbridge Police Departments. They were assisted by the Blackstone Valley Drug Task Force, the Massachusetts State Police Detectives assigned to the Worcester County District Attorney’s Office, and agents from the Worcester DEA Tactical Diversion Squad.

The search warrants led to the seizure of an assault rifle, a handgun, more than 300 grams of cocaine, more than three pounds of marijuana and several thousand dollars. Three vehicles were also seized.

“These arrests are the result of great teamwork involving state, local and federal law enforcement agencies,” Early said.
