NEW BEDFORD, Mass. (WLNE) — Bristol County District Attorney Thomas Quinn said a New Bedford drug trafficker was sentenced to serve up to 3 years in prison last week.

Court documents said 33-year-old Randall Pollard pleaded guilty in Fall River superior court to the following charges:

  • Trafficking cocaine
  • Possession with intent to distribute MDMA
  • Possession with intent to distribute oxycodone
  • Possession with intent to distribute suboxone

New Bedford police said they obtained a search warrant for Pollard’s Smith Street apartment.

During their search, investigators said they found 40 grams of cocaine, 50 oxycodone pills, 10 suboxone strips, seven pills of MDMA, a bag of powdered MDMA and $5,951 in cash.

“This is another example of a defendant profiting off of selling drugs to people in our communities who are addicted. The state prison sentence was warranted,” District Attorney Quinn said.

Pollard was sentenced to serve 2 to 3 years in state prison.
