ORANGE, Mass. (WWLP) - A married couple is facing charges following a heroin distribution investigation in eastern Franklin County.
Mary Carey, spokesperson for the Northwestern District Attorney’s Office, told 22News that David Farrow, 58, and Winifred Farrow, 52, were arrested at their home in Orange on Thursday.
According to Carey, members of the Northwestern District Anti-Crime Task Force had gotten a search warrant and set-up surveillance outside the couple’s 15 Maynard Street home. She says that they saw David Farrow leaving the home and drive to Fitchburg, which has been a major source of the heroin brought into the Orange area.
When Farrow returned to his home, he was confronted by police, and Carey says he admitted to having three grams of heroin inside the vest he was wearing. Police went inside the house and found Winfred Farrow inside.
According to Carey, Winifred Farrow told police that she was waiting for her husband to come home so she could cut, package, and sell the drugs.
The three grams are estimated to have been able to produce 90 packets of heroin for sale, Carey says.
The Farrows will be arraigned Friday in Orange District Court on charges of possession of drugs, intent to distribute, and conspiracy to violate the drug laws.
