New Bedford Men Arrested For Heroin And Cocaine Delivery Services
Several New Bedford men were arrested Wednesday night by members of the Organized Crime and Intelligence Bureau in connection with a heroin delivery service and a cocaine delivery service.
Officers with the OCIB were busy last night making two arrests in connection with a heroin delivery service out of a 23 Tallman Street apartment and another arrest several hours later in a cocaine delivery service out of a 42 Princeton Street apartment.
The productive night started at 7:30 p.m. when 31-year-old Jonathan Rodriguez-Lopez and 25-year-old Angel Helena were arrested after leaving Rodriguez-Lopez's apartment.
The search warrants executed for both Rodriguez-Lopez's home and vehicle resulted in the seizure of 41 grams of heroin, cutting agents, packaging materials, digital scales, a heroin pressing device, and $52,708 in cash.
The heroin has a street value of approximately $4,000.
Rodriguez-Lopez is facing charges of trafficking in heroin and conspiracy. Helena was charged with possession with intent to distribute heroin and conspiracy.
Three hours later another search warrant was executed at 42 Princeton Street and a .45 caliber Ruger semi-automatic handgun, loaded with 9 rounds of ammunition, was seized from the apartment.
About 28 grams of cocaine and $440 in cash was also seized and officers arrested 31-year-old Ady Barbosa Alves for running a cocaine delivery service out of the home.
Alves is facing drug trafficking and firearms charges.
