A drug investigation in Falmouth led to the arrest of two people and the seizure of heroin, cocaine, suboxone, methadone, marijuana, and cash.

Thursday at 1:51 pm, Falmouth Police served a search warrant at an East Falmouth residence. The search warrant is the result of an ongoing narcotics investigation.

Investigators searched the property, located, and seized 30 grams of Heroin packaged in 20 bags valued at about $3,000, 10 grams of Cocaine packaged in 10 bags valued at about $1,000, over 375 grams of Marijuana valued at about $4,000, Suboxone, Methadone, along with $1,400 in cash. Also seized was material used to package illegal drugs, including digital scales and sandwich bags.

I feel anyone charged with intent to distribute should be charged with attempted murder. You just don't have it for your own recreation, you're selling it and killing people. Nice job FPD!! Keep knocking them out!!

Thinking top of Ginger Street. Not positive heard from some people walking by.

Where in East Falmouth?

With the justice system they will get slap on wrist and be doing same thing in no time!!

Lol look how scared he looks. He should of thought about the consequences first before he helped ruin people's lives.

A low bail will only put them back on the streets to sell more. Or run

Good job FPD keep them locked up and away from our children!!!!

Please give them enough time in jail to detour anyone else to do the same thing. For God sake make it so people think twice before they start down that road.

Give them the full 20 years, judge make them example out of them.... you know we need to start Prosecuting to the fullest

They will be back on the street by sundown! 😖
