SOUTHBRIDGE, Mass. — A man is facing charges after police say he was caught with drugs during a traffic stop in Southbridge earlier this month.
Niko T. Lindblom, 23, of Southbridge, was arrested on July 17 on charges including distribution of Class B Oxycodone, according to the Southbridge Police Department.
Detectives investigating complaints of frequent street-level distribution of narcotics in the town observed a vehicle driving away from a suspected drug deal and conducted a motor vehicle stop.
A search of Lindblom’s vehicle yielded suspected Oxycodone pills and suspected proceeds from ongoing trafficking and narcotics sales, police said.
Lindblom has since faced a judge in Dudley District Court. A second person will be summoned to court at a later date.
An investigation remains ongoing.
