HUDSON – A Natick man was taken into custody by the Hudson Police Department after officers reportedly found cocaine in the man’s vehicle.

According to the department, on Wednesday, May 29, at approximately 4:45 p.m., officers were dispatched near Pope Street to be on the lookout for a vehicle driving erratically. 

Officers Cam O’Toole and Jason Hatstat responded and saw the vehicle driving onto Main Street. They reportedly observed violations and pulled the vehicle over.

During the traffic stop, officers said they saw drug paraphernalia inside the vehicle and had the driver – Oliver Aylward, 28, of Natick – step out of the vehicle. They further searched Aylward and his vehicle, and officers discovered items to use drugs, a scale, $2,300 in cash, more than two grams of fentanyl and 24 grams of cocaine.

Officers James Downing and Brennan Grimley assisted in the investigation. 

Aylward was placed under arrest and transported to police headquarters to be booked, fingerprinted, and photographed. 

Aylward was arraigned in Marlborough District Court on charges of trafficking cocaine, possession of a Class A substance and motor vehicle equipment violations.

“I’m proud of the work our officers do each and every day to keep our community safe,” said Chief Richard DiPersio.
