NEW BEDFORD — A drug dealer from New Bedford who admitted to trafficking cocaine, MDMA, Oxycodone and Suboxone will spend two to three years in state prison.

The Bristol County District Attorney's Office said 33-year-old Randall Pollard pleaded guilty to the drug trafficking charges last week after a New Bedford Police investigation uncovered his operation in 2019.

Investigators into Pollard's New Bedford cocaine distribution service searched his Smith Street apartment in September 2019.

Police uncovered 40 grams of cocaine, 50 Oxycodone pills, 10 Suboxone strips, seven MDMA pills and a bag of powdered MDMA in the search, as well as packaging materials.

They also seized $5,951 in cash as proceeds from illicit drug sales.

Last week, Pollard admitted to trafficking cocaine and possessing with intent to distribute MDMA, Oxycodone, and Suboxone.

"This is another example of a defendant profiting off of selling drugs to people in our communities who are addicted," Bristol County District Attorney Thomas Quinn said.

He added, "the state prison sentence was warranted."
