For Immediate Release: 9/17/2020 9:40 pm

On September 17th 2020, a Worcester Police officer was assigned to the Main South foot beat in the area of Freeland St when he observed a small group of males sitting on the steps of a building marked “No Trespass” at about 5:05 PM. As the officer approached to speak with the males, a male later identified as Jacob Fontanez, twenty-nine-years-old of Hitchcock Rd, began to sprint down Freeland toward Main St. The officer pursued Mr. Fontanez, took him into custody, and located multiple bags of heroin that were packaged in a manner consistent with distribution. The officer placed Mr. Fontanez under arrest. Mr. Fontanez is charged with Possession of a Class A Substance with intent to Distribute, Resisting Arrest, and Trespass. He will be arraigned in court.
