Three Worcester Men Arrested for Trespassing
Saturday, October 07, 2017
Worcester Police were in the area conducting a routine check of a building located at 1 Sycamore Street.
On Thursday, October 5, members of the Neighborhood Response Team (NRT) were working in the Main South neighborhood. During the course of their patrol officers were conducting periodic checks of 1 Sycamore Street. The property is prominently displayed with No Trespassing signs. This particular address has been problematic for some time with regard to trespassing, open-air street-level drug dealing, disorderly persons, squatting etc.
During the routine check, a supervisor for the NRT noticed that one of the vacant apartments has a missing front door. The officer looked into the apartment and saw a man, later identified as Samuel Torres, 38, huddled in the back corner of the main room. The officer ordered Torres to exit the apartment and meet the officer in the hallway. Although hesitant, Torres, looking very nervous, eventually complied.
A protective search for weapons located a firm object located in his back pocket. The object was removed and the officer discovered that the object in question was a pill bottle that contained 9 individual knotted plastic baggies of heroin. Torres was placed under arrest and charged with Trespassing and Possession of Class A Substance with the Intent to Distribute.
Additional officers arrived to assist. At this time several officers entered the vacant apartment. Officers observed the apartment to be full of trash and rotten food, needles, and clothing. Officers entered a rear bedroom door and discovered four people sleeping. All four were ordered out of the room. All four were searched. The group all had their shoes off while they were sleeping. Officers checked their shoes prior to handing them back. The last pair to be checked had a loaded .25 caliber handgun in it. The gun belonged to Tyrell Dudley, 29, of 87 Murray Avenue. Dudley was placed under arrest and charged with Trespassing, Improper Storage of a Firearm, Possession of a Firearm without a FID Card and Possession of Ammunition without a FID Card.
The search of the four also produced a small knotted plastic bag that contained crack cocaine. The cocaine was found on Michael Ball, 28, of 87 Murray Avenue. Ball was placed under arrest and charged with Trespassing, and Possession of Class B Substance.
