TAUNTON — A Granite Street woman was charged with drug trafficking Thursday afternoon after police said they recovered nearly 19 grams of heroin stuffed into her bra.

Police said 37-year-old Kelly Jean Gagnon also had 13 Massachusetts EBT food stamp cards and 13 Suboxone pills, which are prescribed to counter heroin addition, stashed away in her first-floor apartment at 11 Granite St.

Taunton detectives, and at least one Drug Enforcement Administration agent, confiscated the drugs and other items during the execution of a search warrant.

Electronic Benefits Transfer cards are commonly used by drug users and dealers in lieu of cash, according to police.

When officers pulled up to the apartment building they said they saw Gagnon in the driveway talking to a woman and two local men, one of whom has a rap sheet for dealing drugs.

It was after she was ordered to put her hands in the air, and told they had a search warrant for her apartment, that police said Gagnon told them the "stuff" they were looking for was in her bra.

Gagnon allegedly handed over 18.5 grams of heroin after police took her inside the apartment and handcuffed her. The pills, EBT cards and an electronic scale were reportedly all inside the dwelling.

Gagnon was charged with possession with intent to distribute heroin and heroin trafficking. She was released on $3,500 bail after being arraigned Friday in Taunton District Court.

An individual convicted in Massachusetts of trafficking between 14 and 28 grams of heroin faces a mandatory 5-year prison sentence.

The apartment house at 11 Granite St. is where Taunton resident Joseph Dugan was murdered in 2010, when he was shot once in the back of the head while talking to two women.

And what will drug testing do. Drug dealers don't do drugs. Most of the time they don't get into their stash because they lose money becoming a junkie on their own supply.

You'll defend these low life's right till the day they give your child crack cocaine...

You don't understand because you're stupid...


If you tested the drug addict (with the EBT card) and cut their benefits they wouldn't be giving the cards to the drug dealers for payment....


Get it now?
