Troopers Stop Vehicle For Inspection Violation And Arrest Suspended Operator Transporting Six Pounds Of Marijuana


Around 1:55AM on Saturday, May 25, 2024, Trooper William Rolls was on Route 95 in Canton travelling southbound. Trooper Rolls’ attention was drawn to a Chevrolet Spark hatchback. Trooper Rolls conducted an electronic RMV check of the Chevrolet and found it to have no inspection sticker on record.


Trooper Rolls conducted a traffic stop and approached the operator of the Chevrolet, ALEXANDRE MACKENS, 25, of Brockton and requested his license. A RMV check of MACKENS’ license discovered his license to be suspended.  A strong odor of marijuana smoke was wafting from the vehicle. Trooper Rolls had MACKENS and his passenger step out of the vehicle.


Now backed up by Trooper Andrew Freitas, Trooper Rolls could see a tray with scissors and rolling paper on the passenger floorboard. Trooper Rolls turned to a search of the Chevrolet. Trooper Rolls discovered vape pens, THC oil canisters, loose cash, and over 6 pounds of packaged marijuana. Trooper Rolls placed MACKENS under arrest and advised him of his Miranda rights.

ALEXANDRE MACKENS was transported to the Foxborough barracks where he was booked, fingerprinted, and photographed. MACKENS was arraigned in Stoughton District Court on charges of:


1.       Possession To Distribute A Class D Substance;

2.       Operation Of A Motor Vehicle With Suspended License; and

3.       No Inspection Sticker.
