GREENFIELD — Tips from community members led police to arrest a man they believe was selling drugs out of his Greenfield home, investigators said.

Mario Everette, 27, was arrested Wednesday and will face 11 drug-related charges, including dealing a controlled substance and maintaining a common nuisance, detectives said.

Officers used confidential informants to buy prescription painkillers from Everette on several occasions at his home in the 800 block of West Tague Street and at local businesses around Greenfield, investigators said.

Police came to Everette’s home Wednesday with a search warrant, and they confiscated marijuana, scales, baggies and other drug paraphernalia; they did not find narcotic pills in the home during the raid, police said.

Everette is being held in the Hancock County Jail on the following charges: one count of corrupt business influence as a Level 5 felony; two counts of dealing a controlled substance as a Level 6 felony; two counts of possession of a controlled substance as a Level 6 felony; one count of maintaining a common nuisance as a Level 6 felony; three counts of unlawful sale of a legend drug; one count of dealing a controlled substance as a Class A misdemeanor; and one count of possession of a controlled substance as a Class A misdemeanor.
