According to a release from the Massachusetts State Police, two men, one from North Adams and a juvenile have been arrested for trafficking drugs.

Last night, at approximately 6:51 p.m., State Trooper Matthew Mielke was observing traffic on I-91 southbound in the city of Holyoke, when he queried the registration of a Subaru Impreza, and learned that the registered owner had a suspended Vermont driver’s license. Trooper Mielke attempted to locate the vehicle to no success.

Later, at approximately 7:47 p.m., Trooper Mielke observed the same vehicle, now traveling northbound on I-91 in the city of Holyoke. Trooper Mielke then stopped the vehicle. The driver was identified as Gregory Cyr, 38, of North Adams. With the assistance of two other Troopers, Cyr and his two passengers, Felix Burgos, 22, of Worcester, and a 17-year-old juvenile male of Springfield, were subsequently found to be in possession of approximately 986 bags of suspected heroin and/or fentanyl, weighing approximately 19.72 grams.

Cyr and Burgos were placed under arrest and transported to the State Police – Northampton Barracks for booking. The juvenile was released and will be summoned to Holyoke Juvenile Court at a later date.
