Police: Tips lead to teen’s arrest for selling pot

GREENFIELD – Tips from neighbors led police to arrest a teenager Thursday on charges of dealing marijuana and drug possession.

Detectives with the Greenfield Police Department said they received numerous complaints in recent weeks about suspicious activity at a home in the Brandywine Village subdivision of the city’s northeast side.

Neighbors were concerned someone living in the 600 block of Fern Street was selling narcotics and told officers there were often fights happening on the property, investigators said.

Officers searched the teen’s home Thursday afternoon and found marijuana, drug paraphernalia including baggies and scales, and three BB guns that resembled actual pistols, police said.

The teen was preliminary charged with dealing marijuana, possession of marijuana, possession of paraphernalia, maintaining a common nuisance and resisting law enforcement, police said.

The investigation into the teen’s activity is still ongoing and additional arrests are likely, police said.
