Somerville detectives, assisted by the North Eastern Law Enforcement Council SWAT team and several K9 units, raided a Somerville home on March 28 and discovered over seven ounces of marijuana and $5,784 in cash, according to allegations in a Somerville police report.
A good portion of the marijuana—four onces of it—was hidden inside a "large Simpsons video arcade game" that needed to be opened with a key, the report says.
The SWAT team and police raided 82 Gilman St., not far from the Somerville Public Library, at about 4:15 p.m. in order to execute search warrants at the home, according to the report.
Inside they searched a number of bedrooms and other rooms in the residence, discovering drugs and drug-related items spread throughout the home, the report alleges.
In addition to the cash and marijuana, officers also found a black Beretta pellet gun, digital scales, white powder and a Suboxone tablet, the report says.
Three men were arrested as a result of the raid.
Steven Domings, 22, and Cody Domings, 20, who lived at the home, were charged with drug possession to distribute and conspiracy to violate drug law. Joseph Baldassari, 23, of 109 Gilman St. (though the report says he was renting a room in the home) was charged with drug possession.
In Massachussetts possession of an ounce or less of marijuana is considered a civil offense.
Please remember that allegations listed in police reports do not indicate a conviction.
