Trio arrested on drug distribution charges

PEABODY — Three people were arrested yesterday morning after officers served warrants with multiple drug distribution charges at a McIntire Court apartment, police say.

Mellonie A. Burke, 43, of 5 McIntire Court, Apt. 2, Peabody, was arrested on a warrant with charges of two counts of distribution of a class D drug, two counts of distribution of a class C drug and conspiracy to violate drug law.

Dennis Anthony Burke, 46, of the same address, was arrested on a warrant with charges of distribution of a class D drug, distribution of a class C drug and conspiracy to violate drug law.

Bryan Burke, 26, of the same address, was arrested on charges of five counts of distribution of a class A drug, subsequent offense.

According to the incident log, police went to 5 McIntire Court at 11:39 a.m. to serve the warrants.

An officer said the warrants were issued after an investigation that involved a confidential informant and purchases of drugs by undercover officers but declined to comment beyond that.

The trio’s relationship to each other was unclear.
