SEEKONK, Mass (WPRI) – Police have taken a suspected heroin and cocaine dealer off the streets.

Early Thursday morning, a Seekonk Police Officer noticed a car parked a motel, which had a license plate registered to a person who was believed to be wanted by U.S. Marshalls.

Police located the suspect, Juan Cintron, 48 of Central Falls, in one of the motel rooms. While searching the room, officers discovered 100 grams of cocaine, 54 grams of heroin, packaging and distribution material and a large amount of cash.

Once the suspect was taken into custody, police learned he was not the same Juan Cintron wanted by U.S. Marshalls. Cintron is still charged with trafficking cocaine and heroin and was arraigned in Taunton District Court.
