A man was arrested by the Massachusetts State Police in Auburn for trafficking fentanyl and heroin.

Nelson Gonzalez, 51, of Providence was charged with trafficking in fentanyl, trafficking in heroin, possession with intent to distribute a class A substance, conspiracy to violate drug law, unlicensed operation of motor vehicle, negligent operation of a motor vehicle and speeding.

Gonzalez was also charged with Child Endangerment, as there was a child in the car at the time of the stop.

The Incident

On Wednesday, a motor vehicle stop for speeding on the Turnpike in Auburn led to the arrest of a man for heroin and fentanyl trafficking.

At about 7:30 p.m., Trooper Mark Parr stopped a 2013 Nissan Altima on I-90 Eastbound in Auburn for traveling approximately 95MPH in a 65MHP zone. Trooper Parr determined that the operator, Gonzalez, 51, of Providence, did not have a valid driver’s license.

During a motor vehicle inventory prior to towing, Trooper Parr located approximately 544 grams of a substance believed to be a mixture of heroin and fentanyl and approximately 35 grams of a substance believed to be a mixture of fentanyl and lactose.
