Springfield’s Most Wanted offender is captured in Westfield

Posted: Updated:

One of three men arrested during a drug bust on Monday at a Westfield apartment complex was Springfield's Most Wanted Josue Torres-Colon.

Torres-Colon has been wanted in Springfield since he allegedly kidnapped and attempted to murder his ex-girlfriend last April.

The 37-year-old was arrested, along with Leslie Hernandez, 34, and Jorge Lopez, 27. Torres-Colon was charged with possession of suboxone. Hernandez and Lopez were charged with heroin possession with the intent to distribute and possession of ammunition without an FID card.

Springfield police are praising the Westfield police for the arrest.

“(Torres-Colon) was featured on Springfield's Most Wanted on March 12,” Sgt. John Delaney, of the Springfield Police Department, said. “He was wanted for attempted murder, kidnapping. This is a good guy to get off the streets.”

Torres-Colon will be arraigned in Westfield District Court on Wednesday.
