NASHUA – Police have charged a woman and a man with several felony-level drug charges, accusing them of trying to sell cocaine, heroin and prescription pills.

Police said Yahaira Acevedo-
Torres, 27, and Luis Ruiz-Gonzalez, 22, were arrested Friday and charged with sale and possession of narcotic drugs, including crack cocaine, heroin, cocaine and oxycodone hydrochloric pills.

Police have been investigating
Acevedo-Torres, “probably going back a couple years now,” Nashua Police Lt. David Bailey said.

During the recent investigation, police said Acevedo-Torres and Ruiz-Gonzalez were making daily trips to the Nashua area for the purpose of distributing narcotic drugs.

Acevedo-Torres and Ruiz-Gonzalez were charged with Class A felonies and were arraigned at the Nashua District Court on Monday. The pair were arrested by Nashua Police Department’s Narcotics Intelligence Division, who were assisted by members of the U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement and the U.S. Drug Enforcement Administration, police said.

Acevedo-Torres was charged with unlawful possession of cocaine and with the intent to distribute the drug cocaine, while Ruiz-Gonzalez was charged with unlawful sale of cocaine.

Police said
Acevedo-Torres was found to be in possession of 59 packages of crack cocaine, 13 packages of heroin, seven packages of cocaine and a package of 30 milligram Oxycodone hydrochloric pills. In total, these drugs have an estimated street value of $5,200, police said.

Although the woman currently under arrest has identified herself as Yahaira Acevedo-Torres, police are still trying to determine her true identity as she has used several aliases in the past, police said.

“We believe she’s an illegal from the Dominican Republic,” Bailey said.

Citizens are urged to call the Narcotics Hotline at 594-3597 or utilize the Nashua Police Department’s website nashuapd.com with any information concerning illegal drug activity.
