Posted

SPRINGFIELD (AP) -- A man described by Springfield police as a major drug supplier to the region is headed to court.

Angel Orengo is scheduled to be arraigned Monday in Springfield District Court on drug and gun charges following his arrest late last week.

The Republican ( http://bit.ly/1juFwYd ) reports that police executing a search warrant raided the 26-year-old Orengo's home at about 8:30 p.m. Friday and seized $15,000 worth of heroin, most packaged for sale, a stolen gun and $107,000 in cash.

Police also found packaging materials, scales and other drug paraphernalia.

Orengo was described by investigators be a high-level drug dealer responsible for supplying heroin to dealers throughout western Massachusetts.

Orengo was held over the weekend and it was not clear if he had a lawyer.
