Police raided a Rathbun Street apartment Friday morning, seizing cocaine, marijuana and prescription pills, and arresting three local men on drug charges.
Police allege Maurice Godin, 27, ran a drug peddling operation at 254/256 Rathbun Street, according to a Police Department press release. He faces charges of possession of cocaine with intent to deliver, possession of marijuana and possession of hydrocodone, a synthetic opiate.
Police seized 27 grams of cocaine, two pounds of marijuana, 60 assorted prescription pills, items associated with drug sales, and about $7,000
in cash. Detectives obtained the search warrant after conducting an
investigation over a period of several months, according to the release.
At 6:45 a.m. detectives and members of the Police Department's Special Reaction Team entered the home. Inside, they found Godin, seven other adults, and two infant children. They also arrested Max Alves, 21, on a charge of possession of marijuana, and Richard Blanchette, 27, on charges of possession of marijuana with intent to deliver and possession of oxycodone.
During the search, a brother of Maurice Godin arrived. Eric Godin, 28, of 198 Winthrop St., demanded that officers let him inside. They refused, and he allegedly became verbally abusive to the officers. When the verbal abuse continued, the officers arrested him and charged him with disorderly conduct.
Maurice Godin and Richard Blanchette were held pending an arraignment Monday morning. The others were released on bail after a Friday hearing at the police station.
