PROVIDENCE, R.I. (WLNE) – State police arrest a Providence man on drug trafficking and fugitive charges, seizing nearly a kilo of pure fentanyl and 10 grams of heroin.

Police say Jesus Ramos, 52 of Providence was arrested Wednesday at around 11:30 A.M. at 102 Ford Street in Providence.

The arrest stems from an investigation by the Rhode Island State Police Violent Fugitive Task Force after reports that Ramos allegedly fled from Boston in violation of the terms of his release while on bail.

Police say the drugs had a street value of $35,000. They also seized drug presses and another drug equipment during the search.

Ramos is facing multiple drug charges and he is due 6th District Court Thursday.
