In court on Thursday, the five were given bonds ranging from $500 to $2,500 based on the charges. It's unclear if they have attorneys.
Investigators say they seized a significant amount of fentanyl pills, along with other opioids, four long guns and ammunition, in the bust.
Walpole's police chief said the investigation started a few weeks ago after officers started seeing a spike in overdoses, including two deadly ones, in the area. The NORPAC drug task force was called in to assist, leading law enforcement to the Norfolk Street house.
