OXFORD, Mass. (AP) — Three central Massachusetts men have been arrested after state police say cocaine was found in a car during a traffic stop.
State police said a trooper stopped a Toyota Camry taxi on Route 395 south in Oxford on Saturday night for a burned out tail light. Police said a search turned up a large amount of cocaine.
Police said Sunday that 34-year-old Jason Niemszyk of Oxford, the backseat passenger, was charged with cocaine trafficking.
The driver, 25-year-old Michael Geldart of Worcester, was charged with drug possession and cited for a defective equipment violation. The front-seat passenger, 24-year-old Alberto Escobar of Worcester, was arrested on outstanding warrants charging him with larceny and drug possession with intent to distribute.
They are scheduled for arraignment Monday in Worcester. It’s not known if they have attorneys.
