Four Arrested In North Adams Drug Raid

Staff Reports
NORTH ADAMS, Mass. — The Berkshire County Crime Task Force arrested four people in a drug raid Monday afternoon. 
 
The District Attorney's office said Anthony Dobbins, 46, Brian Mullen, 53, and Samantha Lloyd, 32, of North Adams and Mark Tanguay, 36, of Williamstown were all arrested while executing warrants on a home and a vehicle. The District Attorney's Office said 141 grams of cocaine were seized as part of an ongoing investigation into drug trafficking.
 
Dobbins and Mullen were charged with trafficking in cocaine at an arraignment Wednesday in Northern Berkshire District Court and held without bail pending a dangerous hearing. Lloyd and Tanguay were charged with possession of crack cocaine and released pending a future court date.
 
The District Attorney's Office said detectives had identified Dobbins had been using Mullen's home at 152 Harding Avenue as a base to store and distribute crack cocaine during an "extensive" investigation.
 
At about 3 p.m, on Monday, Police observed Dobbins leaving Mullen's home in a BMW and stopped the vehicle on North Street. Detectives allegedly found crack cocaine and $998 in cash and placed him under arrest. Mullen was arrested when detectives executed a search warrant on his home and allegedly found more than 100 grams of cocaine. Lloyd and Tanguay were also arrested at the home.
 
"Thanks to the diligence of North Adams police officers and Berkshire County Crime Task Force detectives, a significant amount of crack cocaine has been removed from North Adams," District Attorney Andrea Harrington said in a prepared statement. 
 
"We are grateful to our law enforcement partners for their efforts and are actively working with the Berkshire County Drug Court, local government and community organizations to provide people struggling with substance use disorder the hope and help that they need to recover. We are working to address both the supply side and the demand side of the drug problem here in Berkshire County."
