DARTMOUTH, Mass. (WPRI) — A New Bedford man wanted in New York on drug charges was taken into custody Thursday afternoon in Dartmouth.
Police said an officer arrested 32-year-old Angel DeJesus Rodriguez at Apponagansett Beach.
According to police, Rodriguez and another person were sitting in a car in the beach’s parking lot when an officer discovered them.
Since parking in the lot is restricted overnight, police said the officer ran a check on both men. According to police, the officer discovered Rodriguez had an active warrant out of Suffolk County, New York for “dangerous drugs.“
Police said Rodriguez was charged with being a fugitive from justice.
