  This week a joint investigation led by the Revere Police Narcotics Unit, with the assistance of the Suffolk County Sheriff, the Massachusetts State Police, the Lynn Police and the U.S Drug Enforcement Administration (DEA), ended with the arrest of Michael Valentin, 22, of Lynn. Detectives executed multiple search warrants in Lynn along with an arrest warrant for Valentin stemming from an ongoing drug investigation in Revere. Valentin was charged with multiple counts of Trafficking in Fentanyl, and Distribution of Fentanyl in the City of Revere.

  Valentin was taken into custody by detectives without incident at his Lynn home. After the arrest, detectives executed numerous search warrants at his residence. Reportedly, evidence recovered from the home was indicative of an individual who was in the business of distributing illegal narcotics. The investigation spanned through the Counties of Suffolk, Essex and Middlesex where Valentin was conducting his illegal narcotics distribution business. Reportedly, detectives recovered 394 grams of the deadly synthetic opioid fentanyl, along with 264 grams of cocaine, 30 grams of crack cocaine and nearly $14,000 in cash from Valentin’s residence.

  Valentin will be arraigned in Chelsea District Court for two counts of Trafficking in Fentanyl and one count of Distribution of Fentanyl. He will also be arraigned in Lynn District Court for Trafficking in Fentanyl over 200 grams and Trafficking in Cocaine over 200 grams.
