LEOMINSTER — Law enforcement agencies collaborating on a drug operation made a significant seizure Wednesday, after executing a search warrant at a Union Street garage.
The task forces involved in the raid included the Drug Enforcement Administration Worcester High Intensity Drug Trafficking Area Federal Drug Task Force, North Worcester County Drug Task Force, and K9 units from the Groton Police Department and Worcester House of Corrections.
The search at 105-107 Union St. led to the discovery and confiscation of multiple substances suspected to be illegal narcotics.
Officers found 121 grams of a pink powdery substance and 54.97 grams of green pills, both believed to be Heroin-Fentanyl.
Additionally, 447.44 grams of orange powder and similar-looking pills suspected to contain methamphetamine, as well as 1,162.56 grams of a white crystalized substance thought to be methamphetamine, were seized.
In what appears to be a drug manufacturing setup, authorities also seized a motorized pill/tablet press, a five-kilogram bag of Firmapress containing orange powder used as a pill binder, and a large bag of a white powdery substance, presumed to be Inositol, a common pill filler.
The presence of these items suggests a large-scale operation to produce methamphetamine pills.
Euripides Jovani Cabrera-Colon was arrested at the scene and is facing multiple narcotics charges.
He was transported to the Leominster Police Department for processing.
The exact charges and details of Cabrera-Colon’s arraignment have not yet been released.
