2 face drug charges after Sturbridge traffic stop

Posted: Updated:

STURBRIDGE, Mass. (AP) - A Boston man and a Manchester, N.H., woman who allegedly had a kilogram of what police say is cocaine in their car when they were pulled over are scheduled to face a judge.

Carlos Alberto Richards and Sandra Ovalles are expected to be arraigned Monday in Dudley District Court.

Police say the 34-year-old Richards was driving when the car was stopped on Interstate 84 in Sturbridge on Friday for having excessive window tinting and for failing to signal.

The Telegram & Gazette reports that a police dog found a hidden compartment in the car that contained a plastic bag containing white powder believed to be cocaine. Police also recovered marijuana.

Richards was held on $25,000 bail, while Ovalles was released. It was not clear if they had hired lawyers.
