    State police say two Worcester, Massachusetts, men learned the hard way that it's not a good idea to tool around in a stolen vehicle in the middle of a blizzard when there's a ban on non-essential travel.

    State troopers were alerted to the SUV stolen out of Lowell at about 5:15 p.m. Tuesday.

    Because there was barely any traffic on the roads, the vehicle was soon spotted on southbound Interstate 495 in Hopkinton trailing a procession of plows.

    The vehicle was stopped and the driver and passenger were both found to be in possession of a substance police think is heroin.

    Police say the driver, 27-year-old Andrew Cormier, and his passenger, 22-year-old Shaun Janson, face drug charges as well as charges related to the stolen vehicle.

    Arraignment is Thursday.
