State police seize 300 grams of heroin in Northborough

300 grams of heroin were found in a car stopped by State Police in Northborough yesterday.

Northborough -The Mass. State Police issued this statement this afternoon:

Yesterday at approximately 12 p.m., Trooper Dana Oliver, who is assigned to the State Police Barracks in Holden, stopped a car for various motor vehicle violations on Route 290 westbound. Inside were three men who provided Trooper Oliver information that was false. Further investigation revealed the vehicle was improperly registered, the operator was unlicensed and their Puerto Rican identifications were possibly forged. A subsequent search yielded close to 300 grams of heroin. All three were taken into custody for drug trafficking, conspiracy to violate the drug laws and distribution of a Class A substance.

Taken into custody were: David Coss Vasquez, 30, of Bronx, New York; Juan Portes Cabrera, 57, of Lawrence; and Valentin Casella , 42, Bronx, New York.

All three were scheduled to appear today in Westborough District Court.

  1. Congratulations to Massachusetts Law Enforcement. Job well done. I wonder if your good work will be recognized by Govenor Patrick. Nah, he’s too busy playing big dog. So please let me recognize you for the sacrifices you make every day and putting your lives at risk. Good on you.

    • Indeed a great job and I’ll echo your congrats, and thank goodness we have YOU to pay them recognition! Why would you think that their boss isn’t appreciative and that they won’t be rewarded? Grow up.
