Late last week, three men were arrested by the Springfield Police Department on drug charges. On Thursday, officers from the Springfield Police Department executed a search warrant on a home at 1 Elm Hill and inside found a large quantity of heroin and other drugs allegedly owned by 54-year old Eddie Cruz of Springfield, who owned the home.
Police also found various other drugs and firearms, although it is not known whether the latter were legally registered.
Cruz was later taken into custody for the alleged offense of trafficking heroin, possession of cocaine, and possession of regulated drugs.
He was transferred to the Southern State Correctional Facility on $25,000 cash or surety bail. Since Thursday’s bust, a Thomas Daniels and a Keith Destromp were both arrested in Springfield for possession of heroin.
