“It is important to stop the flow of illegal drugs in the community,” said District Attorney Marian Ryan. “I commend the joint effort by the Lowell Police Department, the Drug Enforcement Agency, and the Andover Police Department in taking this individual off the streets.”
At approximately 11:50 a.m., Tuesday, August 4, the Lowell Police Department’s Special Investigations Section, the DEA Cross Borders Initiative Task Force, and the Andover Police Department stopped Lopez at the intersection of School Street and Broadway in Lowell. Police immediately arrested Lopez on an outstanding warrant from New Hampshire. Upon searching Lopez’s vehicle, officers found a 9 mm semi-automatic pistol, 70 grams of cocaine, 60 grams of what authorities suspected to be heroin, a scale, oxycodone pills, marijuana, and cash.
Authorities then conducted a search of a home that Lopez had allegedly previously been staying at in Lowell. There they found prescription pills, 500 grams of cocaine, and 120 grams of heroin.
These charges are allegations and the defendant is presumed innocent until proven guilty.
