State Police arrest 2 men on heroin & cocaine charges

Both suspects were allegedly in possession of crack cocaine

STURBRDIEGE, Mass. (WWLP) – Two men, not from Massachusetts, are facing multiple drug charges after they were caught speeding last Friday in Sturbridge.

According to the Mass. State Police Media Relations, around 5:00 p.m. Friday, Trooper Kurt D’Angelo and his Field Training Officer, Trooper Scott Driscoll, saw a Buick LeSabre speeding through the I-84 Interchange with I-90 in Sturbridge.

The LeSabre was seen changing lanes “erratically,” so Trooper D’Angelo pulled over the car before passing the toll plaza. After questioning and investigating the two men in the car, State Police said the troopers found heroin and crack cocaine.

The driver, 59-year-old Michael Albert of Bangor, Maine, was arrested and charged with the following:

  • Possession with Intent to Distribute Class A, Heroin
  • Possession with Intent to Distribute Class B, Crack Cocaine
  • Conspiracy to Violate Drug Laws
  • Unsafe Lane Change Citation

  • Possession with Intent to Distribute Class A, Heroin
  • Possession with Intent to Distribute Class B, Crack Cocaine
  • Conspiracy to Violate Drug Laws

Albert and Yenkelun were booked at the State Police Barracks in Sturbridge, and were scheduled for arraignment in Dudley District Court on Monday.
