Maine Man Arrested Trafficking Heroin in Charlton



Last evening, at approximately 8:37 p.m., Trooper Nicholas D’Angelo of the State Police Sturbridge Barracks stopped a Buick Roadmaster on Route 20 Eastbound, just prior to Old Worcester Road in the town of Charlton. A registration query revealed that the registration plates belonged on a different vehicle.

As a result of an investigation, the driver and only occupant of the vehicle was subsequently identified as STEVEN H. PEARL, 36, of Patten, Maine. PEARL was found to be in possession of 410 bags of suspected heroin and 1 bag of suspected crack cocaine.

PEARL was placed under arrest and brought to the Sturbridge Barracks for booking.

PEARL was charged with the following offenses:

1.  Trafficking in Heroin
2. Possession of a Class B Drug (Cocaine)
3. Unlicensed Operation of a Motor Vehicle
4. Unregistered Motor Vehicle
5. Uninsured Motor Vehicle
6. Attaching Plates

PEARL was held on $2000 bail, pending arraignment on Monday in Dudley District Court.

No further information is currently available. Please do not call the barracks directly.
