As a result of the search warrant, trafficking weight of methamphetamine, oxycodone pills, powder cocaine and a significant amount of crack cocaine packaged for sale were seized from within the residence.

All three men were arraigned in Quincy District Court on Aug. 26.

“These arrests were the result of a lengthy investigation by the Randolph Police and our partners in local law enforcement and the State Police, and we thank them for their high level of professionalism and dedication throughout the investigation,” Chief Marag said. “Thanks to this collective effort we were able to take a large amount of drugs and weapons off of our streets.”
