Gary Lefebvre of Granby pleads not guilty to heroin trafficking
NORTHAMPTON — A 32-year-old Granby man denied heroin trafficking and other drug charges Friday in Eastern Hampshire District Court.
Gary Lefebvre, of 507 East State St., pleaded not guilty before Judge Patricia Poelher to charges of trafficking over 18 grams of heroin, possessing a class B drug and possessing a class E drug.
Lefebvre was allegedly found in possession of 800 bags of heroin when he was arrested Thursday, according to the Northwestern district attorney’s office. The street value of the heroin is approximately $8,000, according to the DA’s office.
Lefebvre was also allegedly in possession of about 30 prescription pills and about $430 in cash, according to a statement from the DA.
Lefebvre allegedly admitted selling drugs to about nine people and the cash he was carrying when he was arrested was from drug sales, he is said to have told authorities. Lefebvre was released on $5,000 cash bail and is due back in court on July 25.
Lefebvre was arrested by members of the Northwestern Anti-Crime Task Force, comprised of local and state police and members of the area sheriffs’ departments.
“This case demonstrates how effective the investigative capabilities of the (task force) are,” said Assistant Northwestern District Attorney Jeremy Bucci.
