November 21, 2018 – Yesterday at about 4:40 P.M., Troopers Michael Coflesky and Justin Burd of the Troop C Community Action Team stopped a 2016 Honda Accord Water Street in Fitchburg after determining the registered owner had a suspended license.
During their contact with the operator and passenger, Trooper Burd observed a spent ammunition shell casing and determined that neither occupant was duly licensed to possess firearms or ammunition. Trooper Burd conducted a pat-frisk of the passenger and located approximately 20 ounces of a substance believed to be cocaine and approximately one ounce of a substance believed to be marijuana. Troopers also seized $3,500 cash, which was also located on the passenger.
The passenger, JEREMY EATON, 21, of Lunenburg, was placed under arrest on the following charges:
1. Trafficking in cocaine
2. Possession of a Class D drug with intent to distribute
3. Failure to wear a seatbelt
EATON was held on $5,000 bail pending his arraignment in Fitchburg District Court.
