MANCHESTER, Conn. (AP) - Police say a Manchester man has been arrested for heroin possession just days after he was arrested on the same charges.

The Hartford Courant reports (https://cour.at/1oizWk4) that 35-year-old Pedro Cartegena was arrested just after midnight Sunday.

Police say they found four bags of heroin in Cartegena’s car during a traffic stop. He’s charged with possession of heroin with intent to sell.

It’s the second time in one week that Cartegena has been arrested on drug charges.

He was charged Feb. 2 with sale of illegal drugs and possession of a controlled substance after police say they saw him selling heroin. He was released on $150,000 bond.

Cartegena is again being held on $150,000 bond and is due in court Feb. 18.

It’s unclear whether he’s represented by an attorney.
