West Roxbury traffic stop leads to drug arrest


BOSTON (MyFoxBoston.com) -- A traffic stop in West Roxbury near the Dedham line led Massachusetts State Police to find drugs in the car, which led to the driver's arrest.

While on patrol Tuesday afternoon, a state police officer noticed a 1999 Volkswagen Passat registered to a person with a warrant issued.

The man driving the car was 28-year-old Robert Thompson, of Fall River, who had a warrant issued for him out of Brockton District Court, for motor vehicle offenses and carrying a dangerous weapon.

In the trunk of the car, troopers found 27 individually wrapped baggies of marijuana, and five larger, sealed plastic bags containing heroin.

Troopers arrested and brought Thompson to the Framingham state police barracks, where he was booked on additional heroin and marijuana-related charges.
