WEYMOUTH -
A several-month investigation by Weymouth Police has led to the arrest of a Main Street resident for OxyContin trafficking.
Steven M. Deluca, 45, was arrested at his 1433 Main St. apartment on a warrant for distribution of OxyContin that was obtained by Weymouth Police Detectives.
Sgt. Richard Fuller said officers went to Deluca's home to serve the warrant Thursday evening when they spotted a man arrive at the apartment and conduct what appeared to be a drug transaction with Deluca.
Police stopped the man, Thomas Albanese, 49, of Whitman, down the street from Deluca's apartment.
Fuller said Albenese was arrested after he was found to be carrying 14 OxyContin pills that he had just purchased from Deluca.
Albanese faces charges of possession with intent to distribute OxyContin, conspiracy to violate the drug laws, and committing a drug violation near a school.
Fuller said police officers then returned to Deluca's apartment and placed him under arrest.
Police searched his apartment and found more OxyContin pills, a "large quantity" of cash, a small amount of heroin and an ammunition round.
Deluca is charged with trafficking in OxyContin (over 28 grams), distribution of OxyContin, conspiracy to violate the drug laws, committing a drug violation near a school, possession of heroin, possession of OxyContin, and possession of ammunition without a federal firearms license.
Fuller said police began investigating Deluca in January and had previously observed him selling OxyContin. Police used that case to obtain the search warrant they were going to issue Thursday.
