On July 1st 2021, the Worcester Police Vice Squad had a search warrant for a gray Saturn SUV. At about 6:15 PM, a call came in for a gray Saturn driving through Hope Cemetery at a high rate of speed. Vice Squad officers heard the call and realized it was the same vehicle for which they had the search warrant.
Vice officers took up surveillance positions, and ended up stopping the vehicle in the area of Lincoln plaza. Officers identified the operator as Tyree Williams, nineteen-years-old of Henchman St, and the passenger was Omar Mohamud, nineteen-years-old of Upland Gardens Drive. Mr. Mohamud had a warrant for his arrest and was placed under arrest. Officers searched the vehicle and located individually packaged bags of what appeared to be heroin and “crack cocaine,” along with a small scale and other items consistent with the sale of illegal drugs.
Mr. Williams and Mr. Mohamud were placed under arrest and are charged with Trafficking in Heroin 37-99 grams and Possession of a Class B Substance with Intent to Distribute. They will be arraigned in court.
