Massachusetts State Police arrested two N.H. men and one from Vermont, charging them with drug trafficking after troopers found what appeared to be more than two pounds of heroin in the car.
Police say the car, driven by Edward Lower, 54, of Swanzey, was heading west on Route 2 in Westminster, when a state trooper pulled him over on a motor vehicle violation.
The trooper then discovered Lower had a warrant out for his arrest out of Wrentham Mass. District Court. Police subsequently found more than two pounds of what appeared to be heroin and roughly 16 grams of what appeared to be cocaine in the vehicle.
Lower and his two passengers, Christopher Foster, 27, of Walpole and Joseph Machowski, 27, of Brattleboro were all arrested and each charged with trafficking in heroin, and two counts of possession of a class A substance with intent to distribute.
Lower also was charged with speeding and failing to change lanes for an emergency vehicle.
Police say the three men were taken to the Massachusetts state police barracks in Athol where they are being held on $20,000 bail pending their arraignment in Gardner District Court.
