The fight against drugs and criminal activity marches on in Pittsfield as evidenced by a bust by the Police Department Drug Unit last Friday, June 10, on Linden Street that led to three arrests on various charges.

According to the Pittsfield Police Department via their Facebook page, after a knock and search warrant was executed at 58 Linden Street this past Friday, three people ended up being arrested due to what was recovered in the search of that residence.

The PPD report that Lameek Thomas, 33, Tia Dewey, 41, and Sharon Ledoux, 57, all Pittsfield residents, were arrested after police seized differing quantities of heroin and cocaine plus cash and drug paraphernalia during their search.
