Five Brockton men were arrested last Thursday evening after Braintree and Quincy detectives found heroin packaged for sale in a vehicle they were occupying at the South Shore Plaza.
Christian D. Keith, 19, Cameron A. Keith, 21, Aaron A. Baldasaro, 21, Latrelle D. Burton, 22, and Maurice L. Drayton, JR, 22, were all charged with possession of heroin with intent to distribute and conspiracy to violate the Controlled Substances Act, Police Chief Russell Jenkins said in a statement.
"Detectives approached the men after they parked in a row of cars and had to force entry into the vehicle after getting no response to their demands to exit the vehicle," Jenkins said.
The heroin was found on the passenger side floor where Drayton was sitting. He was also charged with possession of Percocet after three pills were found in his pocket.
