A New York man is facing drug trafficking charges after authorities seized more than 3 kilograms of fentanyl from a truck he was driving in the parking lot of a Market Basket store in Woburn, Massachusetts.
The truck driver, Kelvin Jimenez, 28, of the Bronx, New York, was taken into custody Thursday by Woburn police detectives and members of the Southern Middlesex Regional Drug Task Force.
Authorities said that after receiving information that a large amount of fentanyl was going to be delivered to the Market Basket plaza, units were deployed.
As a result, Jimenez was arrested for trafficking and the truck he was driving was seized.
Police said the approximate weight of the fentanyl seized was 3,238 grams.
It’s unclear when Jimenez will be arraigned or if he has an attorney.
