CHESTER — Authorities have arrested nine people on drug possession and distribution charges after seizing drugs and cash worth nearly $50,000 from a Chester apartment.
Chester police and Vermont State Police on Tuesday seized $18,000 in cash, heroin with a street value of $20,000, crack cocaine worth $6,200 and OxyContin pills valued at $4,000. They say the raid followed a monthlong investigation.
Nine people are being held in jail in lieu of bail and more arrests are expected. Police say a 3-year-old child found at the apartment has been turned over to child welfare authorities.
