On Thursday, the Smithfield Police Department Detective Division arrested Roger A. Montero, 28, of Woonsocket for the possession of cocaine.

The arrest is a result of an on-going investigation of cocaine distribution in Smithfield and Northern Rhode Island communities.

Detectives received word of a white Ford F-250 pick-up truck conducting cocaine sales in various public locations.

After observing surveillance video of numerous transactions, detectives obtained a search warrant for the vehicle.

When Montero was stopped and searched by police near George Washington Highway, detectives located 34 individually wrapped bags of cocaine, totaling to about 4 ounces and valued at an estimated $5,000.

Montero was taken to the Smithfield Police Department and arraigned before a Bail Commissioner before being sent to the ACI.
