WESTFIELD- Two people were arrested in a sting operation for an ongoing drug trafficking investigation Thursday and they now face six charges each.
Jerry L. Frank, 50, of 21 Worcester Court, West Springfield and Tracy M. Skroczky, 46, of 37 Foch Avenue, Westfield, were both arrested Thursday evening and arraigned in Westfield District Court on Friday.
According to court records, Frank faces charges of distribution of a class B substance, possession of a class B substance with intent to distribute, trafficking of cocaine between 18 and 36 grams, possession of a firearm without an FID, possession of ammunition without an FID, and improper storage of a firearm.
Skroczky faces similar charges of possession of a class B substance with intent to distribute, possession of a firearm without an FID, possession of ammunition without an FID, improper storage of a firearm, and two counts of distribution of a class B substance.
Court records indicate that both Skroczky and Frank sold cocaine to an unidentified undercover police officer. A search of the Foch Avenue address by police following their arrest revealed an unsecured Glock .45 semi-automatic pistol, a single .223 bullet, small weight scales with cocaine residue on them, small amounts of cocaine, and plastic sandwich bags possibly used to deal cocaine.
Frank has been denied bail and is being held in the Hampden County House of Corrections pending a January 29 bail hearing. Skroczky is being held on $5,000 cash bail pending a January 29 pre-trial hearing.
