Two Arrested in Worcester for Possession of Heroin & a Stun Gun

Wednesday, December 19, 2018

 

Two people were arrested in the area of Kelley Square with possession of a stun gun and heroin.

Jessalyn Santiago, 19, was charged with failure to stop for police and possession of a class A substance.

Nicholas Perez, 29, was charged with carrying a firearm without a license, possession of a class A substance with intent to distribute, and possession of a class D substance with intent to distribute.

The Incident

On Tuesday December 18 at about 1:45 p.m., a Worcester Police officer was on patrol in the area around Harding St.

The officer noticed a white Lexus coming down Harrison St. The Lexus was swerving between the vehicle lane and the bicycle lane as the driver kept looking back at the police cruiser.

The officer believed that the Lexus might have been involved in an incident yesterday, and attempted to pull over the vehicle on Madison St for the lane violation.

The Lexus did not stop, and the operator, later identified as Santiago of Shrewsbury, attempted to drive away. The vehicle was boxed in by the heavy traffic in Kelley Square, and officers approached the vehicle.

The passenger, identified as Perez of 180 Dewey St, refused to show his hands and was ducking under the seat.

Officers removed him from the vehicle and located an illegal Stun Gun and a small amount of what appeared to be heroin where Perez was reaching. He also had several packages of marijuana.
