May 14, 2018

FITCHBURG, Mass. (AP) — Two Connecticut men are facing drug trafficking charges for the 800 grams of heroin Massachusetts state police found hidden in their car.

Police say troopers conducting a traffic stop in Fitchburg Sunday night pulled over 32-year-old driver Alvaro Arturo Reynoso-Melburne and 34-year-old Wilkins Cuevas-Desus of Hartford, and had a K9 unit check the car when the men acted “extremely nervous.”

The vehicle was carrying about 800 grams of heroin in its wheel wells.

Both men have been arrested and charged with trafficking a Class A substance.

Attorney and arraignment information are not immediately available.
