Police also found digital scales, cut-corner baggies and packaging materials.

According to New Bedford Police at the time, Browning had a previous conviction for trafficking a Class B drug in 2017.

“The defendant is a repeat drug dealer who continues to traffic narcotics. He needs to be kept off the street to protect the public,” District Attorney Thomas M. Quinn III said.
