2 arraigned in connection to fentanyl sale to undercover cop

Posted: Updated:

WOBURN, Mass. (AP) - Two men have been arraigned for allegedly selling fentanyl to an undercover state trooper.

Prosecutors say 43-year-old Manuel Perez-Rosario and 48-year-old Juan Santana-Almanzar were arraigned in Middlesex Superior Court on Monday for allegedly selling over 800 grams of fentanyl to an undercover state police trooper at a Woburn hotel in January.

Perez-Rosario is charged with one count of trafficking over 10 grams of fentanyl and conspiracy to violate the state's controlled substance act. Santana-Almanzar also is charged with conspiracy.

The defendants were indicted by a grand jury in March.

Both men have been ordered to wear monitoring bracelets if they post bail before a June court date. Bail is set at $250,000 cash for Perez-Rosario and $2,000 cash for Santana-Almanzar. Attorneys for both men were not immediately known.
