Haverhill Police took 30 grams of suspected fentanyl off the streets over Labor Day weekend after arresting a Haverhill man and two Vermont residents for alleged drug trafficking in the city’s Lafayette Square.

Officers Justin Graham and Jordan Bergevine were on patrol Saturday, Aug. 31 when they pulled over a car for having a broken windshield, making it unsafe to drive. During the stop, Graham and Bergevine were “led to believe that possible narcotics violations were occurring,” police said.

As a result of the stop, 37-year-old driver Timothy Bilodeau of Granby, Vt., was arrested along with 35-year-old Lee Theriault of Lunenburg, Vt. and 31-year-old Gabriel Gonzalez of Haverhill’s Hilldale Avenue. All three men face one count each of fentanyl trafficking, along with one count of conspiracy to violate the drug laws and a seat belt violation. Bilodeau also faces a charge related to his broken windshield.

Police said $1,264 cash was also seized during the traffic stop.
