A 63-year-old Winthrop man was arrested when police discovered items used for dealing drugs inside his vehicle after they pulled him over on Dec. 29, 2018.

At about 10 p.m. on Dec. 29, a Watertown Police officer patrolling on the Westside spotted a man he knew to have a suspended license, said Watertown Police Lt. James O’Connor.

The man, identified as Larry Lucchetti, was pulled over for driving with a suspended license. The car was towed, and before it was taken away police inventoried the contents.

“While doing that they found items consistent with possession and distribution of narcotics,” O’Connor said.

The items included a digital scale with residue suspected to be heroin, a bowl and shaker often used to mix drugs with residue inside, and multiple cell phones, O’Connor said.

Lucchetti was placed under arrest and while being booked at the Police Station, O’Connor said, officers discovered he had Suboxone strips with no prescription and a folded piece of paper with brown powder suspected to be heroin.

Larry A. Lucchetti, 63, of Winthrop, was arrested on charges of driving with a suspended license, possession with intent to distribute a Class A drug, possession of a Class B drug, driving with no inspection sticker, and not having his license in possession while driving, O’Connor said.

  1. I’m sure that his lawyer will come up with “valid excuses” for having those items in his car. If not, he can always use that “he was from a broken home”.
