The Tewksbury Police Department has done an outstanding job cleaning up the drug trafficking activity on the main roads of town, especially near the highway access points of Woburn Street, Andover Street and Main Street.
So what's a drug dealer to do? It makes sense they would try to slip into town and conduct their business on a quiet side road.
Apparently that won't work either.
On March 28, Tewksbury officers arrested Reyes Lara, 42, of 5 Cunard Way, E. Boston and Richard Lara-Tejeda, 44, of 515 Montauk HWY., East Hampton N.Y., for possession with the intent to distribute Class A (heroin), possession with the intent to distribute Class B (crack cocaine), possession with the intent to distribute Class B (cocaine) and conspiracy.
Both Lara and Lara-Tejeda were observed by Detectives acting suspiciously on Walnut Road, a small road with just 17 homes, located in South Tewksbury off Coolidge Street. A subsequent stop of their motor vehicle resulted in the arrests and recovery of narcotics.
Both were due to be arraigned at Lowell District Court on Monday.
