SPRINGFIELD, Mass. (WWLP) – More than 500 oxycodone pills were seized in a raid on a Springfield apartment, following the arrest of a couple accused of selling drugs in another neighborhood.
According to Springfield Police Sgt. John Delaney, 53 year-old Luis Andujar and 45 year-old Evelyn Peralta also had more than $3,600 in cash at their Allen Park Road home.
Delaney says that detectives received information that “large amounts” of oxycodone pills were being sold from a parking lot on Belmont Avenue near the “X.” He says that the detectives determined a man and woman were making deliveries to the parking lot from an apartment on Allen Park Road.
While running surveillance in the lot Thursday evening, officers spotted the suspect’s vehicle, and allegedly saw a drug deal take place. Police then followed the car to the Racing Mart on Sumner Avenue, where they arrested Andujar and Peralta. Inside the car, Delaney says officers found “numerous oxycodone pills.”
They received a search warrant for the couple’s apartment, which turned up more Oxycodone pills, 98 Endocet pills, and $3,614 in cash.
Both suspects are charged with trafficking in a class A substance. They were held in police custody overnight, and are scheduled to be arraigned Friday in Springfield District Court.
