    Police in Worcester, Massachusetts, say three people, including one juvenile, are facing drug trafficking charges after they were pulled over for speeding Wednesday night.

    Officers reported seeing a vehicle traveling at a high rate of speed around 6:40 p.m. Police eventually found and pulled over the vehicle at 2 Harlow St.

    The three males inside the vehicle were identified as members of local gangs in the city.

    They have been identified as a 17-year-old male, who was driving, Kevin Jones, 23, and Kurtis Wilson, 24.

    Police say Wilson kept looking at a backpack that was in reach of all three of them. Fearing there may have been a weapon in the bag, police frisked all of the males. No weapons were found.

    Inside the backpack there was crack cocaine, cocaine, baggies, a phone and $1,436.

    All three of the males were charged with drug trafficking.

    Jones and Wilson are set to be arraigned Thursday. The juvenile will be arraigned at a later date.
