Two Haverhill men were among four arrested Thursday morning on charges of heroin distribution and possession with intent to distribute heroin.
Armed with warrants, police uncovered $200,000 in cash and approximately 1.5 kilograms of narcotics at two alleged “stash houses.” Arrested were Jose C. Torres, 27, and Angel G. Rivera Serrano, 36, both believed to live in Haverhill, were arrested along with Richard R. Fernandez, 26, of Lawrence, and Luis Humberto Arias Lara, 41, of Lowell.
According to court documents, the men distributed heroin in and around Waltham over the course of several months. Each allegedly sold drugs to an undercover investigator.
The charges of distribution and possession with intent to distribute heroin each provide for a sentence of no greater than 20 years in prison, a minimum of three years and up to a lifetime of supervised release and a fine of $1 million, or twice the value of the funds involved, whichever is greater.
