A six-month investigation into the sale of illegal narcotics in the town of Hillsborough has led to 11 arrests so far.

On Tuesday, police arrested 10 people on 76 charges with help from the Adult Probation Office.

That round-up came after the Dec. 4 arrest of Anthony Tyrone Farrish, 30, of Torain Street.

He was charged with cocaine trafficking, possession with intent to manufacture, sell or deliver cocaine, manufacturing, selling or delivering a controlled substance within 1,000 feet of a public park, maintaining a dwelling for the sale of a controlled substance, maintaining a vehicle for the sale of a controlled substance, possession of a firearm by a felon and possession with intent to manufacture, sell or deliver prescription pills.

During a search of the Torain Street residence, assisted by the Orange County Sheriff’s Office and Carrboro Police Department, investigators seized:

• 217 grams of crack cocaine

• 3.2 grams of marijuana

• $4,700 in cash

• Prescription pills

• 11 bottles of anabolic steroids

• A .357 Magnum revolver

This week, police arrested the following on cocaine possession, sale and delivery charges in connection with the investigation:

• Calvin Bernard Bragg, 46, of West Orange Street.

• Peter Sam Jacobs, 33, of Homemont Avenue.
