Nashua teen arrested for NYC drug charge
MERRIMACK — State police arrested a 19-year-old Nashua man during a traffic stop on the Everett Turnpike early Saturday morning after learning he was wanted by New York City police on a drug charge.
According to a press release, troopers patrolling the highway stopped Jose M. Gonzalez for driving erratically near Exit 11 about 3:30 a.m. He could not produce a driver’s license, but had a New Hampshire non-driver identification card.
A computer check showed Gonzalez was wanted by New York police on a charge of possession of dangerous drugs and he was arrested without incident, police said.
Gonzalez is being held without bail at the Hillsborough County jail as a fugitive from justice and will be arraigned Monday in Merrimack District Court.
