The Andover and Methuen Police Departments teamed up earlier this week to seize heroin, firearms and cash when executing a search warrant. Gabriel Rosario, 41, and Felix Manuel Felipe, 33, both of Lawrence, were arrested and charged with two counts each of unlicensed firearms possession and two counts each of trafficking more than 100 grams of heroin, among other offenses.

Andover narcotics detectives and the Drug Enforcement Administration executed the warrant at 100 Woodview Way, Apt. 1102 on Monday and took Rosario and Filipe, both in the apartment at the time, into custody. Two handguns, multiple rounds of ammunition, two Airsoft guns, 109 grams of a substance believed to be heroin, $20,000 cash and a ballistic vest were confiscated by authorities.

Arrest warrants for alleged heroin trafficking have been issued for two residents of the Woodview apartment. Luis A. Cobian-Rivera, 35, and Eddymar Reyes, 23, both of Andover, are considered armed and dangerous and being actively sought by police. Anyone with information about their whereabouts is asked to call 911.

“I want to commend the Andover Police detectives, along with the Methuen detectives and DEA for their hard work in this case,” Andover Police Chief Patrick Keefe said. “Getting guns and these deadly drugs off the streets are vital in keeping our community safe. We hope to have the other two individuals in custody as soon as possible as the investigation continues.”

Monday’s takedown was the culmination of a long-term investigation throughout October and November into the alleged trafficking ring operating out of Andover and Methuen.
