New Bedford Police detectives on Thursday seized 10 grams of cocaine, four grams of fentanyl, a loaded Colt .32-caliber handgun, and more than $4,000 in cash while executing a search at a 383 Wood Street apartment.

Six individuals were placed under arrest "as a result of the seizure," according to a media release from police spokeswoman Melissa Bathcilder. She said that Hector Abreu-Garcia, 26, of 21 Warren St. Apt. 1, faces firearms charges, two counts of drug possession with intent to distribute, and a conspiracy charge. Batchilder said that Abreu-Garcia "initially attempted to flee the scene" and that back in 2013 he was found guilty of possession of a firearm without a license. The spokeswoman added that Abreu-Garcia has "posted rap videos on YouTube," one of which depicts "the same pistol believed to have been seized during the incident."

Malik Cannon, 19, of 383 Wood St. on Nov. 5 was charged with two counts of drug possession with intent to distribute and with a conspiracy charge, Batchilder said.

Four other co-defendants were also arrested and charged on possession with intent and conspiracy charges, NBPD public information officer Lt. Scott Carola told WBSM News. They are Brighton Kirk Hernandez, 18, of 383 Wood St.; Thaddeus Johnson, 37, out-of-state; Milton L. Servis II, 58, of 383 Wood St.; and Makayla E. Costa, 23, of 166 Bates St., Apt. 3.

Detective Samuel Algarin-Mojica of the NBPD Gang Unit investigated the case.
