State Police, Lawrence Police, Essex Sheriff’s Deputies Arrest 26 in Zero Tolerance Operation

LAWRENCE

I cannot thank Massachusetts State Police Colonel Kerry Gilpin and Essex County Sheriff Kevin Coppinger enough for their continued support of Lawrence. This is yet another example of a successful operation conducted by the Massachusetts State Police, Essex County Sheriff’s Department, and the Lawrence Police working together. I am particularly grateful for the constant and continual collaboration with members of the State Police assigned to Troop A under the leadership of Major Pat Russolillo. –Chief Roy Vasque

The Massachusetts State Police, Lawrence Police, and Essex County Sheriff’s Department conducted a Zero Tolerance Initiative Friday night in Lawrence that resulted in 26 arrests. Of the 26 arrests made, one was for trafficking of a Class A narcotic and another for possession of a Class B narcotic.

The male charged with trafficking was found in possession of 400 pills divided into four packages, of 100 pills each, as well as two cellular phones and more than $3,000 cash, all of which was seized.

Three suspects were charged with possession of fraudulent drivers’ licenses or state identification cards. Two of those had a Massachusetts license or identification issued to an alias used by the suspects; their real identities were determined through their fingerprints.

Thirteen motorists were charged with unlicensed operation, while six others were charged with operation after license suspension.

Police issued one criminal summons.

The operation was a coordinated effort undertaken by the MSP Troop A Community Action Team, the Lawrence Police Impact Operations Unit, and Essex Sheriff’s Deputies. State and Lawrence Police appreciate the participation of the sheriff’s deputies who provided prisoner transport, bilingual capabilities, and site security for the staging area. Deputies transported two arrestees held on no bail or high bail to the Essex Sheriff’s facility in Middleton for housing pending bail or arraignment.
