Inside, police said, they found 34 pills believed to be Vicodin, 4.5 grams of a substance believed to be heroin, and 27 grams of a substance believed to be cocaine. Authorities also seized $390 in cash, a digital scale, plastic bags, a plate, and a razor blade. The plate and blade were found to have crack cocaine residue, State Police said.

Wallace was one of six people inside the apartment, but he is the only one facing charges.

At his arraignment in Brockton District Court, Wallace pleaded not guilty to charges of trafficking cocaine, possession of a Class B drug (Vicodin) with intent to distribute, and possession of a Class A drug (heroin) with intent to distribute, the court clerk said.

He also pleaded not guilty to outstanding warrants for assault and battery on a police officer, breaking and entering in the nighttime, and three counts of malicious destruction of property under $250, the clerk said.

Wallace is being held on $50,000 cash bail for the drug charges and $50,000 cash bail for the outstanding warrants.

He also has outstanding warrants for his arrest in Boston for charges including identity fraud.
