According to Capt. Paul Laferriere, detectives from the Special Investigation Section of the Lowell Police Department executed a search warrant on Monday at 45 Madison St., second floor, as part of an ongoing narcotics distribution investigation.

During that search, police found 240 1/2 grams of cocaine, $1,326 in cash, three scales and several other items used in making and distributing cocaine, he said.
