HUDSON – Police have charged two men with trafficking Fentanyl following a traffic stop early on Tuesday, Jan. 30.

Around 3 a.m., officers Nick Girard, Cam O’Toole and Heather Manning, working a midwatch patrol shift, conducted a motor vehicle stop for various motor vehicle violations. During that stop, a large amount of Fentanyl was discovered, according to Police Chief Richard DiPersio.

Both men were arrested and taken into custody at the scene. The vehicle was impounded and towed to police headquarters. Officers then obtained a search warrant for the vehicle and executed that warrant on the morning of Thursday, Feb. 1. K9 Officer Sam Leandres and K9 Jocko assisted.

Massachusetts resident Jonathan Feliciano, age 35, was charged with the following:

  • Operating after suspension of driver’s license
  • Marked lane violations

“Yet another example of the outstanding work your HPD officers do on a daily basis to keep this community safe,” said DiPersio.

Feliciano and Velazquez were both arraigned at Marlborough District Court.
