SPRINGFIELD, Mass (WWLP) – An anti-gang police detail focusing on drug dealing in the area of Federal and Worthington Streets in Springfield lead to three arrests on Thursday afternoon.

Springfield Police Department spokesman Ryan Walsh told 22News, officers arrested 30-year-old Bradley Davis, 21-year-old Kevin Colon-Soto, 37-year-old Jonathan Bonilla-Rosado and recovered a loaded, stolen firearm, 131 bags of heroin, seven grams of cocaine, an additional 10 bags of cocaine and $675 in cash.

Walsh said detectives observed a drug deal on the 900 block of Worthington street around 4:30 p.m. where three people were working together to sell drugs to a man later identified as Bonilla-Rosado. He was arrested shortly after and while being taken into custody he allegedly attempted to swallow some of the drugs.

Police then focused on arresting the three individuals allegedly selling drugs. Walsh said Davis saw the police and attempted to run away, but was eventually located with a loaded firearm, heroin, and cocaine.
