Officer Derby reportedly saw a grey Honda commit motor vehicle violation, and attempted to pull the vehicle over near the Natick line, 10:45 p.m. on Jan. 29. Rather than stopping, the car then fled into Natick on Route 9, then into Framingham and eventually stopped when it ran into a curb. Two men fled the vehicle on foot.
Inside the car, which police later learned was stolen, they located "a sizeable amount of marijuana," according to a Wellesley Police web news update recently posted. Marijuana packaged, police believe, for sale and distribution.
Wellesley and Framingham police later located one of the two suspects, 19-year-old Alexander Cruz of Framingham, and placed him into custody. He was arrested and charged with receiving stolen property. Cruz was arraigned on Jan. 30, and is also facing charges in Framingham.
