Abington Man Charged with Trafficking

A joint task force comprised of members of the Massachusetts State Police Gang Unit, Brockton Police detectives, and an FBI agent yesterday culminated a two-month investigation with the arrest of an Abington man on narcotics charges.

The Southeastern Massachusetts Gang Task Force stopped JASON HALTIWANGER, 40, in his car in the parking lot of his apartment complex after conducting surveillance of him throughout the day. During the arrest, task force members recovered a large bag containing a substance believed to be crack cocaine from the suspect’s pocket.

Task force members also executed search warrants for HALTIWANGER’s home and two vehicles. Also seized from the vehicle was a large amount of United States currency.

HALTIWANGER was charged with trafficking a Class B substance.

The photos below show the confiscated drugs and cash. No further information is being released at this time.
