Shortly after 8:45 a.m. Saturday Trooper First Class Frederick Jones stopped a vehicle bearing New York license plates for speeding on I-95 North at Exit 35.

According to a release from State Police, Jones detected several things that led him to suspect narcotics trafficking. Jones reportedly received consent to search the vehicle from the driver and lone occupant, 46-year-old Rueben Abreu of New York City.

Fairfield Police Officer Kevin Wells and his K9 partner, Jagger, responded to a request for assistance from State Police. Jagger indicated that he sensed drugs, and police said they found a case containing four vacuum-sealed bricks of suspected cocaine.

The estimated value of the 8.7 pounds, or 3.95 kilograms, of cocaine was more than $250,000, according to State Police.

Abreu was arrested and held in lieu of a $300,000 bond, but State Police did not announce what charges he faced. He is due to be arraigned Monday, March 14, at State Superior Court in Milford.

State Police said they seized 8.7 pounds of cocaine, worth $250,000, on I-95 in Milford Saturday, March 12.
