North Sea Drug Raid Leads To Arrest


A North Sea man was arrested late last week following an investigation by the East End Drug Task Force, whose investigators said he was selling drugs in the North Sea and Southampton areas.

Michael Johnson, 27, was arrested at his Locust Avenue home following an early-morning raid on Thursday. The raid, which started at 6 a.m., uncovered heroin, cocaine, pills, marijuana, scales, packing materials and cash related to drug sales, according to a press release issued by Suffolk County District Attorney Thomas Spota’s office.

Mr. Johnson was charged with felony counts of possession of a controlled substance, possession of a controlled narcotic, and possession of a narcotic, as well as misdemeanor counts of possession of a controlled substance, criminal use of drug paraphernalia, and acting in a manner that can cause injury to a child, a charge that was not explained by the D.A.’s office. He was also charged with unlawful possession of marijuana, a violation. Arraignment information was not immediately available.

The East End Drug Task Force was assisted in the investigation leading to Mr. Johnson’s arrest by the Southampton Town Police Emergency Services Unit and the New York State Police K-9 unit.
