Police: 8 pounds of fentanyl and little girl found in apartment

If you drive north of Boston for a short while, you will arrive in Haverhill. The historic town was the site of the recent arrest of two women and two men. According to a news report, all four are facing serious drug trafficking charges.

Law enforcement officials said they found in the apartment eight pounds of the powerful opioid pain medication fentanyl. Police claim that there was an amount of fentanyl within reach of a 5-year-old girl in the residence.

A 27-year-old woman who lives in the apartment was charged with six counts of fentanyl trafficking, resisting arrest, giving a false name, unlicensed possession of ammunition and conspiracy to violate drug laws, among other allegations.

A 27-year-old man taken into custody is facing seven charges of fentanyl trafficking, as well as two charges of distribution of a Class A drug, among other charges.

The other two defendants face similar accusations, though one of them -- a 29-year-old woman -- is also accused of reckless endangerment to a child.

Police allege that after they breached the fortified barricades at the front and rear doors, they found the little girl inside sitting approximately two feet away from a package containing 200 grams of fentanyl.

Law enforcement officials said that the raid yielded 3.7 kilograms of fentanyl (slightly more than 8 pounds), plus 400 rounds of ammunition. They also said they seized scales, grinders and a substance used to cut mix in with the narcotics to increase volume.

It goes without saying that these four -- and those who face similar charges -- are in serious trouble and need the help of an attorney experienced in drug defense. Contact Cataldo Law Offices, L.L.C. to schedule a free consultation.
