GREENFIELD, Mass. (WWLP) – Four people were arrested after a traffic stop on I-91 north in Greenfield on Friday, May 21.

According to Massachusetts State Police, a trooper noticed a car speeding in a construction zone around Exit 46 of I-91 before 10:30 p.m. so he pulled the car over. When the trooper asked for the registration, one of the passengers, 33-year-old Timothy Hubbard of Ware told the officer the vehicle was rented to a friend’s sister whom he had never met. Both Hubbard and the driver 28-year-old Alexandrea Chadwick of West Brookfield couldn’t provide the registration or confirm the circumstances of the vehicle.

During this conversation, the trooper noticed drug paraphernalia on the floorboards near Hubbard’s feet, removed both suspects from the vehicle, and arrested them. According to state police, after a discussion, it was determined that the items on the floor belonged to Hubbard.

After searching the vehicle, troopers seized approximately 93 grams of crack cocaine, 810 bags of heroin, several crack pipes, and a large amount of currency believed to be proceeds from illegal narcotic activity.
