SPRINGFIELD, Mass. (AP) - Springfield police say five members of the same family were arrested during a drug bust at a city home.

Police say a 36-year-old woman, her 37-year-old husband, and the woman’s three children - an 18-year-old daughter and sons ages 15 and 17 - were arrested during the raid Tuesday evening.

In addition, police arrested a 16-year-old friend of the sons, who was at the home at the time and was in possession of a loaded gun. An officer wrestled the gun out of the teen’s hands.

Investigators say they seized more than 300 bags of heroin from the home, numerous bags of packaged marijuana, more than $1,000 in cash, scales and materials used for packaging drugs.

The three adults face drug distribution charges. The boys face juvenile charges.
