UPDATED: Limo Company Targeted by Police Drug Raid
UPDATE: Two of the three men arrested Thursday in a North Attleboro drug bust appeared in court today, and had plenty to say to the media.
Police say they seized hundreds of marijuana plants as part of an ongoing investigation but did not say where specifically the plants were found. The two men were charged with possession of marijuana with intent to distribute and conspiracy to violate drug laws.
The third suspect did not appear in court.
The President and Vice President of Celebrity Limousine, Brandon Braddock and Johnathan Coombs, told waiting media outside of court that they were falsely accused. Braddock says that Coombs is a licensed medical marijuana patient in Rhode Island who used marijuana to cope with back problems.
The Bristol County District Attorney's office tells ABC6 that there will be a formal press conference on the investigation on Monday.
