SOUTHBRIDGE — A late-night traffic stop on Worcester Street by Southbridge Police Department detectives and officers has led to the seizure of suspected narcotics with an estimated street value of $15,000 and the arrest of four individuals, authorities announced Sunday.

The stop, which occurred at about 10:30 p.m. Saturday, was the culmination of an investigation into local drug trafficking.

With the help of narcotics-detecting K-9 “Pablo,” now serving with the Charlton Police Department, police recovered roughly 100 grams of suspected cocaine, numerous pills believed to be Adderall and Oxycodone, multiple bags of a substance thought to be marijuana, and approximately $1,156 in cash suspected to be proceeds from drug sales.

Eliezer Rivera Jr., 23, Nashari Feliciano, 22, Isaac Colon-Miranda, 23, and Raymond Rivera-Torres, 20, all residents of Southbridge, were taken into custody on charges including trafficking in cocaine over 100 grams and conspiracy to violate drug laws.

Rivera Jr. also faces charges for possession of class B substances.

The suspects were held at Southbridge Police Headquarters with bail set for Rivera Jr. at $50,040, and $10,040 each for Feliciano, Colon-Miranda, and Rivera-Torres.

They are scheduled for arraignment in Dudley District Court on Monday, Nov. 20.
