Providence man arrested after alleged drug delivery

PROVIDENCE, R.I. (AP) — A Rhode Island man is facing drug charges for allegedly making a delivery of two kilograms of fentanyl as well as a smaller amount of heroin to a confidential source working with investigators.

The U.S. attorney for Rhode Island announced Wednesday that 31-year-old Josimar Delacruz-Reyes has been detained on possession with intent to distribute charges.

Authorities say late last month Delacruz-Reyes agreed to deliver the drugs to the source in exchange for a payment of $115,000. Delacruz-Reyes was arrested shortly after the alleged delivery, when he traveled to a coffee shop where he was expecting to receive cash for the drugs.

Authorities say a court-authorized search of his apartment turned up more drugs.

A message was left with the suspect's federal public defender.
