A weeks-long investigation has led to the arrest of a Sandwich man on fentanyl trafficking charges on Wednesday, March 18.
Police said that they had been investigating Gregory Losordo, 35, due to his alleged narcotics trafficking. The department was granted a warrant to search him and his home.
At 2:15 PM, the Sandwich Police stopped a vehicle in the area of Mr. Losordo’s Chase Road home after seeing him as a passenger in the car.
Police said that Mr. Losordo was not cooperative and fought with them during the stop.
While he was fighting with police, multiple plastic bags containing what police believe to be fentanyl fell from his pants onto the ground.
As he was placed under arrest, Mr. Losordo continued to fight.
Upon searching Mr. Losordo and his home, police found 11 plastic baggies containing a total of 29 grams of fentanyl. He was taken to the police station, where he was booked and held overnight on $20,000 cash bail.
While he was being held, he vandalized the jail cell by ripping a fire sprinkler out of the ceiling, which caused a portion of the station to become flooded.
Mr. Losordo was charged with trafficking fentanyl, resisting arrest, and felony vandalism.
