Local

The investigation led to the discovery of four firearms, fentanyl, crack and heroin, and more than $20,000 in cash, the district attorney said.

Police charged five people this week as part of a three-month, multi-agency, statewide investigation, according to a statement from Norfolk District Attorney Michael Morrissey.

The investigation led to the discovery of four guns, fentanyl, crack and heroin, and more than $20,000 in cash, Morrissey said.

Those arrested were:

Johnell Gilmore Monteiro29 years old, of Frederick Avenue, Fall River, for possession of a firearm without DID, possession with intent to distribute class A drug (fentanyl), possession with intent to distribute class A drug B (cocaine) and illegal possession of ammunition.

Michael Shepard44, of Bay Street, Hull, for possession of a class B drug, possession of a class E drug, possession of a class C drug and conspiracy to violate drug laws.

Roy Delong66, of Dysart Street, Quincy, for distributing a class A drug (fentanyl).

Elizabeth Goldrick27, of Dysart Street, Quincy, for conspiracy to violate the drug laws.

Caitlyn Campbell39, from Beach Street in Quincy, for conspiracy to violate the drug laws.

Wilkins Torres-Colon, Washington Street, Jamaica Plain, was also arrested, but the charges were not included in the statement.

Gilmore-Monteiro, Campbell, Shepard, Delong, Goldrick, all pleaded not guilty to the charges, according to Morrissey.

Gilmore-Monteiro’s bail was revoked in two open cases in Dorchester District Court, the statement said. He returns to Quincy District Court on May 31 for a pretrial conference and probation hearing.

Shepard’s bond was revoked for another open case and he was held without bond until his June 2 pre-trial conference, the statement said.

Delong was released on a personal recognizance and ordered to return on June 28 for a pre-trial, the statement said.

Goldrick is free on $250 cash bond and has been ordered to return on June 17, according to the statement. The court denied Assistant District Attorney Keith McCray’s motion to revoke his bail in two open cases in Quincy District Court, officials said.

Campbell’s bail was set at $2,500 and she was ordered to return on June 2 for a pre-trial conference, according to the statement.

The district attorney said the investigation began when law enforcement learned of an organized drug distribution organization from a single location on Dysart Street in Quincy.

“State Police detectives assigned to my office began working with detectives from (the) Quincy Drug Control Unit, other Massachusetts State Police units, and Randolph police investigators , Boston and Hull,” Morrissey said.

The investigation took authorities to Bay Street in Hull, Frederick Avenue in Fall River, Washington Street in Jamaica Plain and Avalon Drive in Randolph.

The district attorney said cocaine was found at all of these locations. Guns, packages of US currency and pills that have not yet been identified were also found.

“This is not the end of this investigation,” Morrissey said.
