Braintree police charged a young man and woman with dealing cocaine and marijuana after a tip led them to a basement on Brookside Road.
After watching an alleged drug deal happen at the home Monday afternoon, detectives pulled over two men nearby and found less than an ounce of marijuana on them. Detectives learned where the weed came from and returned to the home, Chief Russell Jenkins said in a statement.
The homeowner at 28 Brookside Road "was very cooperative" and let police into the basement. Inside, detectives found "numerous mason jars and other
containers containing marijuana, cocaine and other unknown substances that will be sent to the drug lab for testing," Jenkins said.
Detectives also discovered what they believed to be a Class C drug and more than $1,000 in cash.
Steven Zawaski, 19, of Braintree and Casey M. Doherty, 23, of Quincy were arrested and both were charged with possession with intent to distribute marijuana and cocaine, possession of a Class C substance and conspiracy to violate the Controlled Substances Act.
Doherty was also charged with possession of morphine after police found eight pills in her purse.
