According to Massachusetts State Police, troopers executed a search warrant at an apartment on 109.5 Oakland Street Friday morning. 

Police said when the home was searched troopers found the bottom part of a shotgun under a couch and the barrel of a shotgun behind the kickboard of a kitchen cabinet.

In the room of a resident later identified as 21-year-old Ronald Ingram, troopers allegedly found two plastic baggies containing a substance believed to be crack cocaine and a plastic baggie with 30 grams of a substance believed to be powder cocaine in an eyeglass case.
