Two Weymouth brothers were arrested Tuesday after allegedly dealing drugs in North Braintree Square.

According to police, a detective was watching the parking lots in North Braintree Square when he saw a man pull into the lot and sit in his vehicle. A short time later, a second vehicle pulled up alongside the first, police said.

In a release, police said the two male drivers exchanged something and then drove off in separate directions.

The detective called for assistance from Weymouth detectives, and police stopped both vehicles.

According to police, the first suspect stopped without incident and was found in possession of a small amount of heroin. The second suspect, who had two women in the car with him, failed to stop when signaled to do so. He led detectives on a brief chase before coming to a stop.

Police said the second suspect also had a small amount of heroin.

Edward D. Chamberlain, 51, and Ted K. Chamberlain, 46, both of Weymouth, were arrested and charged with possession of heroin and conspiracy to violate the Controlled Substances Act.

Edward Chamberlain was additionally charged with failure to stop for a police officer and operating to endanger.
