 (Editor's note: The following information was released by the Tewksbury Police Department. Arrests do not necessarily indicate guilt.)

On June 18, 2019 the Tewksbury Police Department arrested Juan Guerrero-Montero, 34, of 361 Hildreth St., Apt #2, Lowell for distribution of a Class B substance (cocaine), resisting arrest, failure to stop for police, possessing a false registry document, 3 counts of identity fraud, false information to law enforcement, misleading a police officer, unlicensed operation of a motor vehicle and an outstanding warrant for trafficking cocaine, over 18 grams.  

Detectives conducted an investigation into a drug trafficker in the area of the Extended Stay America Hotel located at 1910 Andover St.  Detectives observed a drug transaction in the parking lot and attempted to stop Guerrero-Montero, who began to flee in his vehicle.  Officers assisting were able to stop the vehicle, but Guerrero-Montero resisted. He was eventually placed into handcuffs.  

Guerrero-Montero presented himself to Detectives as Tomas Negron of Florida and had a Florida driver’s license that indicated as such. Through a thorough investigation Detectives were able to determine that he was not Negron and that he was in fact Guerrero-Montero with an outstanding drug trafficking warrant out of Lowell.  An immigration detainer was issued by the Department of Homeland Security for his illegal immigration status.

Guerrero-Montero was  arraigned at Lowell District Court Wednesday.
