Worcester Man Arrested for Heroin Trafficking

Thursday, June 02, 2016

 

Frank Tavarez, 22, of Worcester was arrested and charged with heroin trafficking on Tuesday, May 31 at approximately 11 a.m. after he was stopped by members of the Worcester Police Vice Squad who were conducting under cover surveillance. 

Tavarez was charged with trafficking a class A substance 18-36 grams and distribution of a class A substance. 

The Arrest 

While conducting surveillance, members of the Vice Squad observed a Toyota Sedan pull over and park on Stockholm Street. The officers then saw three individuals in the vehicle and continue watching as the vehicle did not have any passengers exit. 

after a short time, officers observed Tavarez enter the rear of the vehicle and the vehicle drove around the  block before dropping him off  not far from where he was picked up. 

Some members of the vice squad maintained surveillance of Tavarez while others stopped the Toyota. One of the occupants of the Toyota admitted purchasing heroin from Tavarez, but stated that he had swallowed the heroin when stopped by police. 

As surveillance on Tavarez continued, members of the vice squad observed him engage in a second suspected drug transaction with occupants of another vehicle. After this exchange, members of the vice squad stopped Tavarez. 

During the search, officers found $988 in Tavarez' pocket and 84 individually knotted bags of heroin in a sock inside Tavarez' pants. The total weight of the heroin was 26 grams.
