Illegal Prescription Drugs Found in Watertown Home

Watertown Police Department

Jason Perillo, 35, is facing charges after police reportedly found hundreds of illegal prescription drugs, marijuana, hash and more than $2,000 cash in his home on Greenwood Street.

A Watertown man is facing charges after investigators discovered hundreds of prescription drugs, marijuana, hash and more than $2,000 in cash in his home on Greenwood Street, according to police.

Jason Perillo, 35, of 151 Greenwood Street, was arrested Feb. 4. Police said they had reason to believe Perillo had been selling drugs out of his house and car and obtained a search-and-seizure warrant to investigate.

The search and seizure turned up 140 Alprazolam pills, 22 Lidocaine patches, 49 Suboxone films, 65 Oxycodone pills, 10 Roxicodone pills, four small bags of marijuana, hash and marijuana butter and $2,150 in cash, which police believed to be proceeds from drug sales, according to police.

Perillo is facing multiple drug charges, including possession with intent to sell and sale of narcotics within a school zone.

He was issued a $25,000 bond and released on a promise to appear. He’s due in court Feb. 18.

Police said the case is ongoing and investigators expect to make additional arrests.
