A Boston youth was arrested during a Barre town drug bust April 5.
On April 5, shortly after 6 AM, Barre city and town police executed a search warrant at a residence along the 700 block of East Barre Road in Barre.
Officers seized about 174.5 grams (6.15 oz) of crack cocaine, 390 bags of fentanyl/heroin, $1,056 dollars in US currency, and a 9mm handgun.
A male individual who subsequently refused to provide personally identifiable information was taken into custody. The male alleges to be a 17-year-old from Boston, Massachusetts. After exhausting efforts to positively identify the male, he was scheduled to be brought before the Court at 3:30 pm April 5 where he would have to positively identify himself or face civil contempt charges. He will further be facing charges of cocaine trafficking of 150 grams or more, and fentanyl trafficking of 70 milligrams or more, both being felonies.
