Police and Drug Enforcement Agency officers arrested a man they say had half a kilo of cocaine on Cambridge Street Thursday. According to police reports, an ongoing drug investigation led them to a man sitting outside of Grampy's gas station, at 296 Cambridge St.
The officers read the man his Miranda Rights in his native language and asked him what was in his bag. He told them he had a delivery for someone; when officers questioned him further he told them it was cocaine, according to police reports. Officers asked to look in the bag and saw what was determined to be 500 grams of cocaine.
Officers also found a Social Security card on the man that did not belong to him. He told officers he was in the country illegally, they said. He was arrested on charges of trafficking in a class B substance (cocaine) and forgery of registry document.
