In one of the more outlandish true crime stories to come out lately, two Western Massachusetts men were recently arrested at Denny's restaurant in Enfield, Connecticut on charges of cocaine possession.
Enfield Police report they arrested two men from Springfield after receiving a report from the Springfield Police Department regarding a vehicle that had given Springfield police the slip.
According to Enfield police, they were notified by Springfield police around 2:30 p.m. on Wednesday to look out for a red Mercedes with Connecticut license plates that had fled from officers.
At least one of the occupants of the vehicle reportedly had a firearm and allegedly committed several crimes in Springfield on Wednesday. Just after 3 p.m., the red Mercedes was located unoccupied in St. Adalbert’s Cemetery.
