A man was arrested Sunday for possession of heroin and trafficking in Springfield, Vermont. Vermont State Police say that around 11:40 Sunday morning, troopers received a 911 call about someone operating a vehicle erratically while traveling North on Interstate 91.
Troopers were able to locate the vehicle at the Springfield Irving gas station off Exit 7. The vehicle’s driver, 23-year old Timothy Ksepka of Hardwick, Vermont consented to a search of his vehicle. During the search, troopers detected a void in the roofing in the front of the car and removed the dome light. They found 520 bags of heroin hidden in the headliner and Ksepka was arrested.
After being transported to the Vermont State Police barracks in Rockingham, he was processed and given a citation for Trafficking Heroin, Transporting Heroin into the State of Vermont, and Possession of Heroin.
He was held at the Southern State Correctional Facility for lack of $1,500 bail and appeared in court Tuesday.
