Norwood police arrested a Norwood man Tuesday after several neighbors raised concerns about vehicles that frequently stopped by the man’s home.
Jonathan Winn, 40, of Neponset Street, was charged with multiple counts of distributing a Class B substance.
According to a news release, several residents reported suspicious activity in the area in early September and wrote down license plate numbers of cars stopping by Winn’s home. Neighbors told police they suspected the drivers of the cars spotted were involved in drug dealing, so an investigation began.
Norwood and Norfolk County Police Anti-Crime Task Force detectives conducting the investigation were told by several people that Winn was selling oxycodone pills. Police watched his home and according to a statement, the information gleaned “proved that the sources’ information to be correct.”
A search warrant was executed Tuesday and 28 oxycodone pills were located in Winn’s car, along with $1,200 in cash that included a bill matching money used in a "controlled buy" from detectives working on the investigation.
An additional 153 oxycodone pills were located inside Winn’s home and an additional $17,100 was found in a safe.
