1 min read

STURBRIDGE — A routine registration check led to a dramatic arrest on Monday as Trooper Andrew Kinney, patrolling Route 84 eastbound, took notice of a Dodge minivan and initiated a stop that uncovered an array of firearms and marijuana.

The vehicle, which had its registration revoked due to insurance issues, exited the highway and stopped at a local gas station.

Trooper Kinney, with backup from a Sturbridge officer, approached the operator, Jeffrey Bien-Aime, 30, of Brockton, upon his return from the station’s store.

After Bien-Aime provided his license, it was discovered he had an active arrest warrant.

He was detained by Trooper Kinney and later joined by Trooper Kyle Yost for a vehicle search, revealing two handguns, loaded magazines including a 30-round pistol magazine, over 45 rounds of ammunition, and in excess of 45 pounds of marijuana.

Bien-Aime faced arraignment at Dudley District Court on multiple charges, including operating an unregistered and uninsured motor vehicle, possession and distribution of marijuana, illegal possession of firearms, and multiple counts related to ammunition and firearm storage.
