On September 26th, 2019, the Worcester Police Neighborhood Response Team was conducting surveillance in the area of lower Chandler St. At about 1 PM, officers observed a Toyota Highlander pull up to two females who were standing on the corner near Chandler and King St. The passenger of the vehicle, later identified as Victor Zeno, twenty-five-years-old of Oread St, leaned out of the window and gave a small object to one of the females in exchange for paper cash.
Officers observed the female quickly inspect the item, then make a fist around it. After the vehicle left, the officers stopped the female and recovered two bags of what appeared to be heroin. Victor Zeno was located and placed under arrest for Distribution of a Class A Substance. He will be arraigned in Worcester District Court.
