Webster Police Make Drug Arrests On North Main Street


Orlando Ortiz (Webster Police)

It was no joking matter on April Fools Day for Webster Police.  Officers on the overnight shift were called to an apartment at 103 North Main Street after receiving a tip of a drug transaction taking place.  Webster Police Detectives conducted surveillance and observed a possible sale of narcotics.

As a result, 55-year-old Orlando Ortiz was arrested with a substance believed to be crack cocaine.  While searching Ortiz’s apartment, 29-year-old Natalie Sullivan of Dudley was found to be in possession of Suboxone without a prescription. She was placed under arrest for Possession of Class B Substance.

Police say they found 8 grams of Fentanyl along with other pills and evidence associated with narcotics sales.  Ortiz was charged with two counts of Distribution of Class B Substance.  Two other individuals will be summoned into court for possession of Class B Substance at a later time.

Sullivan and Ortiz were arraigned at Dudley District Court on Monday, April 4th.
