Northampton Raids Turn up Drugs and Guns

Four alleged drug dealers have arrested at two subsidized housing complexes in Northampton.  Police raided a unit at Leeds Village Apartments early Monday turning up 68 grams of crack cocaine and $5,000 in cash.  Arrested were 19 year old Amanda Welch, 37 year old Luis De LaRosa, and 54 year old Norma Carona.  Another raid at Meadowbook Apartments resulted in the arrest of 42 year old Marilinda Morales on drug dealing, stolen property and firearms charges.  The raids were a joint effort by Northampton and State Police and the Northwestern DA’s anti-crime task force.
