Heroin Deal Interrupted Results in Arrest of Two

Timothy Cullen
Norfolk, MA

Carlos Pena
Providence, RI

Wrentham Police Officers patrolling the west end of town interrupt a heroin drug deal and arrest Timothy Cullen, age 25 of Norfolk, Massachusetts and Carlos Pena, age 29 of Providence, Rhode Island.

Wrentham Police Sergeant James Barrett and Detective Barry McGrath were patrolling the west end of town on February 4, 2013 in response to residents concerns of potential drug deals being conducted roadside in and around their neighborhoods.

According to the officer’s reports, they came across a vehicle parked on an isolated area of Summer Street, Wrentham and recognized the operator as Timothy Cullen, a Norfolk resident.

Officers observed an uncapped hypodermic needle in plain view in Cullen’s vehicle and based upon statements made, determined Cullen was waiting to purchase Heroin from a drug dealer.

Within moments, Sergeant Barrett observed a male, subsequently identified as Carlos Pena of Providence, RI operating a Volvo station wagon on Summer Street driving toward him.  Based upon information at the scene, Sergeant Barrett believed Pena to be arriving to sell heroin to Cullen.
Carlos Pena was arrested on scene and transported to Norwood Hospital for evaluation.  Timothy Cullen was also arrested and transported to Wrentham Police Headquarters for booking.
