A Rockland woman and a Brockton man are under arrest, facing illegal gun charges and a variety of drug charges, after a gunshot was fired from a Webster Street apartment around 12:30 Saturday afternoon.
Rockland Police say the bullet traveled through a wall in the apartment into a neighboring house where it ended up lodged in a cabinet in the kitchen. Three handguns and a quantity of crack cocaine along with $7,000 in cash were found in the apartment. When officers arrived, they observed three people – one of them carrying a black backpack – trying to leave the area. When the officers searched the backpack, they found two handguns and 37-1/2 grams of crack cocaine. Police then obtained a search warrant for the apartment where they found a third handgun, and more crack cocaine. Under arrest are 26 year-old Kayla Jorge of Brockton and 23 year-old Jose Medina of Brockton. Jorge and Medina were held without bail awaiting their arraignment today in Hingham District Court.
