NEW BEDFORD – A New Bedford man who was recently released from prison has been arrested after police say they caught him with more than 100 grams of methamphetamine in his Court Street apartment.
New Bedford police said detectives arrested Jared Debarros, 29, after searching his 52 Court Street apartment on Thursday.
They allegedly found three plastic bags of methamphetamine pills weighing over 114 grams, along with eight additional methamphetamine pills, 10 suboxone strips, digital scales and packaging materials, and $12,826 in cash.
Detectives said they also found an additional $11,900 in cash in Debarros’ vehicle along with an Adderall pill, for which he did not have a prescription.
A total of $24,726 in cash was seized in Debarros, police said.
He was released from prison in 2018 after serving six years behind bars on charges of assault with intent to murder for a 2010 shooting in New Bedford.
Joshua, the 27-year-old brother of Smith Street resident Debarros, was with him during the drug arrest.
Joshua had two active warrants for his arrest, according to police, so he was also taken into custody.
Jared is charged with possession with intent to distribute a Class B drug and trafficking 100 grams or more of methamphetamine.
