DA: 105 lbs. of Cocaine Seized in Mass. Probe

Drugs- Arrest-Cocaine

ANDOVER, Mass. (AP) — Prosecutors say about 105 pounds of cocaine was seized from an Andover man’s SUV following a three-month investigation by state police.

Essex County District Attorney Jonathan Blodgett says 51-year-old Jose Martinez was arrested Friday afternoon following a traffic stop in Andover.

Martinez is charged with trafficking cocaine and being held pending arraignment Monday. It’s not clear if he has an attorney.

The Andover Eagle-Tribune reports the value of the cocaine is estimated at $4.5 million.
