An alleged heroin dealer who would buy drugs in Holyoke and resell them for profit in Greenfield is facing a child endangerment charge after what police found in his apartment.
According to Mary Carey, spokeswoman for the Northwestern District Attorney's office, Everett Kendrick, 39, of Miles Street, Greenfield, was charged with possession with intent to distribute heroin, child endangerment and possession of a class B substance (subsequent offense) after members of the Northwestern Anti-Crime Task Force executed a search warrant at his residence Wednesday.
Kendrick told police that he sold two bundles of heroin to the occupants of a vehicle that police watched him meet with. He also said that he traveled to Holyoke to pick up heroin twice a day. He purchased between 10 to 12 bundles per trip.
He would pay $35 per bundle in Holyoke and resell them in Greenfield for about $85.
Officers located $157 in cash on him when he was searched. Inside his residence, officers recovered 42 bags of heroin, 19 packets of Suboxone, an electronic scale and personal papers.
Police also found evidence that a young toddler was living at the residence with Kendrick and his girlfriend. Neither the child nor girlfriend were present during the execution of the search warrant.
Carey said more than 10 uncapped needles, some still loaded with liquid suspected to be heroin, and one containing dried blood, were found in a bathroom within reach of a child.
Kendrick is being held on $5,000 bail pending arraignment in Greenfield District Court Friday.
