CORRECTION: An earlier press releases stated there was one arrest, when in fact there were two arrests.
“On April 2 NBPD Narcotics and Gang Detectives seized approximately 88.5 grams of Fentanyl, a small amount of cocaine and $2,578 from a Nissan Altima in the parking lot area of 85 Coggeshall St.
Daejhon Gomes, 23, 2 Shawmut Ave., the target of the search warrant, was charged with trafficking Fentanyl and Hector Nieves, 27, 173 Coggeshall St., Apt. #1, was charged with drug possession. Nieves was arrested last July for trafficking cocaine and fentanyl. Both of his cases are pending in District Court.
Detective Bruce Szyndlar investigated the case.
