New Bedford Man Arrested for Dealing Meth
NEW BEDFORD — A New Bedford man who was recently released from prison has been arrested after police said they caught him with over 100 grams of methamphetamine in his Court Street apartment.
New Bedford police said detectives arrested 29-year-old Jared Debarros after searching his 52 Court Street apartment on Thursday.
They allegedly found three plastic bags of methamphetamine tablets weighing over 114 grams, along with eight additional pills of meth, 10 suboxone strips, digital scales and packaging materials, along with $12,826 in cash.
The detectives said they also found another $11,900 in cash in Debarros' vehicle as well as an Adderall pill, for which he did not have a prescription.
In total, $24,726 in cash was seized from Debarros, police said.
He had been released from prison in 2018 after a six-year stint behind bars on assault with intent to murder charges for a 2010 shooting in New Bedford.
Debarros' 27-year-old brother Joshua, a resident of Smith Street, was with him during the drug bust.
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 or more grams of methamphetamine.
