State Police arrested three men on I-290.

Press release submitted by State Police.

At noon yesterday, Thursday, Oct. 11, Trooper Dana Oliver, who is assigned to the State Police Barracks in Holden, stopped a car for various motor vehicle violations on Route 290 westbound in Northborough. Inside were three men who provided Trooper Oliver information that was false. Further investigation revealed the vehicle was improperly registered, the operator was unlicensed and their Puerto Rican identifications were possibly forged. A subsequent search yielded close to 300 grams of heroin. All three were taken into custody for drug trafficking, conspiracy to violate the drug laws and distribution of a Class A substance. Taken into custody were:

David Coss Vasquez, 30, of Bronx, NY;

Juan Portes Cabrera, 57, of Lawrence; and

Valentin Casilla , 42, Bronx, NY.

All three were scheduled to appear today in Westborough District Court.
