WORCESTER – A traffic stop near 845 Main St. on Wednesday, May 20, resulted in a 46-year-old Worcester man facing drug trafficking and motor vehicle charges.
Just before 6 PM on Wednesday, the Worcester Police officer initiating the stop quickly realized the attached license plate did not match the vehicle.
When the officer approached the vehicle, he saw the driver attempting to obscure a plastic bag in his hand with what appeared to be crack-cocaine inside of it. The officer eventually gained possession of the bag.
After another officer arrived on the scene, they informed the driver, Angel Manuel Lopez-Ramos, that he was being placed under arrest. Lopez-Ramos attempted to resist arrest and was apprehended after a brief struggle.
The vehicle he was driving was unregistered and uninsured.
Lopez-Ramos faces charges of Possession of Class B with Intent to Distribute, Illegally Attaching Plates, Operating an Uninsured Motor Vehicle, Operating an Unregistered Motor Vehicle, Interfering with a Police Officer and Resisting Arrest.
