WORCESTER - Police dispatched to South Plaza on Grafton St. for a report of loud music around 8 PM on Tuesday, April 6.

Many of the gathered vehicles in the lot dispersed as police arrived. The plaza has several “no trespassing” signs.

The male behind the wheel, Armando Cruz, 25, of Worcester, did not have a license to operate a motor vehicle. The Department of Motor Vehicles had revoked the registration, and the vehicle was uninsured.

Officers noticed a knife in the center console. Further investigation revealed a machete inside the vehicle and a loaded firearm behind the front passenger seat.
