Groton Woman Charged with Trafficking Heroin in Littleton
LITTLETON -- A Groton woman was arrested after being accused of selling heroin inside a commercial property on King Street in Littleton where she worked for an outside vendor at the company’s cafeteria, authorities say.
Police found 30-year-old Elizabeth Gapinski in possession of 46 individual bundles of heroin, which weighed approximately 54 grams, according to a press release from the Middlesex District Attorneys Office.
“Police determined the amount of heroin and its packaging were indicative of drugs intended for sale,” the release states.
Littleton police were contacted about 8:30 a.m. Friday about the alleged presence of drugs inside the property’s bathroom and cafeteria. Police were told on scene that Gapinski had allegedly been in possession of heroin.
A search of Gapinski’s purse, which the defendant willingly handed over to police, led to the alleged discovery of the heroin, the release states.
Gapinski was arraigned in Ayer District Court on Monday and charged with trafficking over 36 grams of heroin.
Judge Margaret Guzman set Gapinski’s bail at $500 cash. The 30-year-old was also ordered to stay away from the location of the alleged crime. Gapinski is slated to reappear in court on May 8.
