EAST BRIDGEWATER — Chief Scott Allen reports that the East Bridgewater Police Department arrested and charged a man with multiple drug offenses after he was arrested earlier this week.

On Monday, Jan. 20, an East Bridgewater Police detective was working undercover when he purchased 20 Alprazolam pills from Andrew P. Sullivan, 21, of East Bridgewater.

Following the narcotics purchase, East Bridgewater Police applied for and received a warrant to arrest Sullivan.

On Monday, Jan. 27, EBPD undercover detectives arranged to purchase one-and-a-half ounces of MDMA from Sullivan. At approximately 5:40 p.m., undercover detectives went to meet Sullivan at his home on Washington Street. Upon arrival, Sullivan was sitting in his car in the driveway. The officers exited their unmarked cruiser and identified themselves as police and placed Sullivan in custody without incident.

In searching Sullivan’s belongings, officers located and seized 52 grams of MDMA, 97 grams of marijuana, 35 Suboxone tabs, 11 Xanax pills and 12 Adderall pills. In addition, officers seized a digital scale, a cell phone and drug packaging materials.

Sullivan was charged with Trafficking More than 36 Grams of MDMA, Possession with Intent to Distribute a Class B Drug (Adderall), Possession with Intent to Distribute a Class B Drug (Suboxone), Possession with Intent to Distribute a Class D Drug (Marijuana), and Possession with Intent to Distribute a Class E Drug (Alprazolam)

Sullivan was arraigned Tuesday, Jan. 28, in Brockton District Court.
