Fairhaven Police Arrest Repeat Drug Offender
FAIRHAVEN — Fairhaven Police Detectives, working with Mattapoisett Police Detectives, arrested 28-year-old Zachary Lovegrove on multiple drug charges Friday night.
Police executed a search warrant just before 6 p.m. Friday at Lovegrove's residence at 344 ½ Main Street apartment 2S in Fairhaven. Lovegrove, who was free on $10,000 bail for trafficking in heroin and unlawful possession of a firearm, was charged with trafficking in heroin, possession of heroin and possession of cocaine. During the search of Lovegrove’s apartment, investigators seized over $200 in cash, a cell phone, a digital scale, a small amount of cocaine and over 40 grams of heroin.
This is the second time Fairhaven detectives arrested Lovegrove for trafficking in heroin. On November 4, 2016, Lovegrove was arrested by Fairhaven detectives, working with members of the Bristol County Sheriffs Office South Coast Anti-Crime Team. During that arrest, Lovegrove was charged with trafficking heroin, possession with intent to distribute a class C substance and possession with intent to distribute a class B substance. Investigators seized over $1,000 in cash, 164 doses of Xanax, 32 Suboxone strips and over 18 grams of heroin.
At the time of Lovegrove’s November 2016 arrest, he was free on $10,000 bail for trafficking heroin and unlawful possession of a firearm, which he was charged with in 2015.
After being booked, Lovegrove was transported to the Ash Street Jail, where he was held pending arraignment. He will be arraigned in Third District Court this week.
