Four people were arrested on Saturday after police discovered that one man was allegedly dealing drugs out of his Quincy home.

According to police, officers had received numerous complaints of drug dealing out of the home on 16 Prospect Hill in Quincy. Officers subsequently set up surveillance on the house.

Police say they saw a blue pick-up truck drive to the house, pick someone up, and then drive away. The truck returned back at the address a short time later and dropped the same man off.

Police stopped the pick up truck down the road and questioned the driver, whose name has not been released as he has not yet been charged.

The driver admitted to buying cocaine from the man he had picked up and dropped off. Officers found two bags of cocaine in the car, police said.

Police forwarded the information to detectives at the Quincy home, and authorized officers to arrest the suspect.

Officers also received a search warrant for the property.

Two women were found inside the house and told to leave. An older woman came to pick them up, however soon returned with both girls demanding to be let into the house.

A fight ensued during which the female suspects allegedly attacked several officers.

Officers subdued the suspects and placed them all under arrest.

A search of the property uncovered cocaine, Klonopin, Lidoderm, and Suboxone pills.

Four people were arrested.

Andrew Vincente, 22, was charged with two counts of possession of Class B (cocaine and Klonopin), distribution of Class B, and possession of Class B with intent to distribute.

Catherine Landers, 26, who also lived at the house was charged with possession of Class B with intent to distribute, conspiracy to violate the controlled substance laws, assault and battery with a dangerous weapon, knowingly resisting arrest, and impeding a police investigation.

Angela Baker, 41, from Quincy was charged with assault, disorderly person, knowingly resisting arrest, and impeding a police investigation.

Leigha Edmands, 17, who also lived at the house, was charged with assault and battery with a dangerous weapon, assault and battery on a police officer, knowingly resisting arrest, disorderly person, and impeding a police investigation.
