On Monday, November 23, 2015, at about 10:15am, Cohasset Police detectives, assigned to the Criminal Investigation Division, executed a search warrant at an apartment building located in Cohasset Village on South Main Street. Brian J. Bradley, 62C South Main Street, Cohasset, MA, 29-years of age, was arrested and charged with the following offenses:
- Possession of Class “B” with the intent to distribute within 100’ of a park;
- Possession of Class “B” with the intent to distribute; and
- Possession of Class “B”
Cohasset Police Detective Harrison Schmidt and Detective Lieutenant Gregory Lennon, allege in an affidavit filed with Quincy Court that Bradley was using his South Main Street apartment to sell cocaine to a group of customers for the past several months. Detectives from Hingham, Hull, Norwell, and the United States Coast Guard Investigative Service, assisted Cohasset detectives with this investigation. A quantity of white powder thought to be cocaine was seized during the raid along with cash and records.
Cohasset Police Chief William Quigley said in a statement “This is community policing at its best. What started as simple observations by foot and bicycle officers on the beat in the village, culminated in a multi-agency raid that dismantled a drug operation in the heart of our town center.”
Bradley was booked at Cohasset Police HQ and transported to Quincy District Court for arraignment. The investigation is ongoing.
