Adams man found guilty by drug distribution jury


ADAMS, Mass. (WWLP) — An Adams man has been found guilty by a jury of distributing heroin and cocaine.

Berkshire District Attorney spokesman Andrew McKeever, 40, says Christopher Gaynor d’Adams was found guilty on Wednesday of the following counts:

  • Possession of a Class A substance with intent to distribute
  • Possession of a Class B substance with intent to distribute

Gaynor was sentenced to three and a half to four years in state prison. He was arrested on March 17, 2019, after officers from the Berkshire County Law Enforcement Task Force and North Adams Police Department executed a search warrant. Police seized a large amount of heroin, cocaine, cash and drug distribution items.

“I thank the North Adams Police Department and Law Enforcement Task Force for their diligent work during this investigation and prosecution,” District Attorney Andrea Harrington said. “My approach to addressing the large amount of dangerous drugs in our community is unwavering as my office continues to pursue those who aggressively run distribution operations, and I continue to advocate for public health approaches for those who struggle with problematic substance use.”

Police came under suspicion of Gaynor after a three-month investigation into the distribution of heroin and cocaine in the North Berkshire area.
