WEBSTER — A Millbury man with an active arrest warrant is now facing new charges after law enforcement affirms he was allegedly carrying 16 grams of heroin at the time of arrest.

Uriel Crespo, 30, was pulled over by Webster Police Officer Sean Ebbeling in Webster on Wednesday. During the traffic stop, Ebbeling reported Crespo appeared nervous, was breathing very rapidly, was unable to make eye contact, and had his jeans partially undone. Crespo was taken into custody on the arrest warrant, and during the booking process at the police station, the suspect reportedly continued to display nervousness.

When searched by law enforcement at the police station, officers reportedly uncovered a plastic bag containing 25 individual baggies of what police believe to be heroin. The suspected heroin was reportedly found “in his groin area” and weighed about 16 grams. Police also seized $882 in cash that Crespo had been carrying.

In addition to the arrest warrant, Crespo has been charged with possession of a Class A substance with the intent to distribute. He was held on $245 cash bail, and was scheduled to be arraigned at the Dudley District Court.
