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 and Vermont State Police seized heroin with a street value of $20,000, as well as crack cocaine, OxyContin pills and cash. They say the raid yesterday followed a month-long investigation.
All nine people are being held 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.
