A Brockton man was arrested while in a Maine prison on Tuesday for defaulting on a warrant related to his 2010 arrest in the South End on drug charges. 

At 5 p.m. on February 19, members of the BPD Fugitive Units took custody of Edwell Gethers of 123 South Leyden Street, Brockton, MA from Kennebec County Jail in Augusta, Maine. Gethers had defaulted on a Boston District Court warrant issued on January 18, 2013 for possession of cocaine with intent to distribute.

Gethers was originally arrested on the evening of Friday, September 17, 2010 in an undercover drug operation in the Washington Street area near East Berkley Street. Police reported Gethers provided a bag of off-white rocks believed to be crack cocaine. Officers arrested four individuals as a result of this sting, including Gethers.

Gethers was booked for the outstanding warrant and charged with being a fugitive from justice.
