Two of four men that allegedly broke into a Hanson home on Main Street on September 29th are facing dangerousness hearings today (Thursday) in district court.

Police are still looking for two other suspects in connection with the break-in.

Meanwhile, a search warrant was executed at the Hanson apartment that was broken into at 230 Main Street, apt. 2 and police seized 48 grams of a white powdery substance thought to be fentanyl, $20,000 in cash, a small amount of pills (xanax and gabapentin), scales and plastic baggies.

The apartment’s residents, 26-year-old Jennifer Best and 27-year-old Marlon Texeira, were taken into custody Wednesday night in Stoughton, transported to Hanson, held on $100,000 cash bail each, and face arraignment today on charges of trafficking in Fentanyl and possession of a class E substance.

Numerous agencies worked together on this case, including Hanson, Pembroke, Brockton and Whitman Police, along with the state police violent apprehension unit and K9 unit, Plymouth County Sheriff’s Department and the U.S. Marshal’s office.
