PITTSFIELD — A local man who police allege has been involved in the sale of controlled substances for several years was arrested Friday afternoon.

Scott Salley, 29, is charged with two counts of possession of scheduled drugs and trafficking in scheduled drugs.

Police on Friday afternoon searched his Hartland Avenue home, where they found oxycodone pills, drug-related paraphernalia, drug-related documentation, a food stamp card belonging to someone who doesn’t live there and other items police think were used in drug trafficking, according to a news release from the Somerset County Sheriff’s Department.

The investigation is ongoing and there could be more charges against Salley or others, according to the release. Police have been investigating Salley for alleged involvement in drug trafficking, including the sale of oxycodone pills, for the past few years, it said.

He was released on bail Friday night, according to a booking officer at the Somerset County Jail.
