Two men are facing drug trafficking charges after police said they seized more than $30,000 worth of cocaine and other drugs from an apartment near the City Point section of South Boston.
Detectives from the Area C neighborhood drug unit searched the N Street apartment at 7 p.m. Monday. In addition to 400 grams of cocaine, the officers found three firearms including an AK-47 machine gun, ammunition, 150 pills, crack cocaine, and marijuana, police said.
Rick Joyce, 37, and James Joyce, 44, were taken into custody and are expected to be arraigned today in South Boston District Court. It was not immediately clear whether the two men were relatives.
The charges include drug trafficking and possession with intent to distribute. The men could face up to 15 years in prison.
James Joyce is back...as a drug lord?
