FALL RIVER — Fall River police have arrested a city resident after he was found with suspected crack and fentanyl along with a stolen gun in his car.

Police said that detectives from the city's vice intelligence and gang unit stopped 30-year-old Shawn Rose in his car after learning that he was allegedly selling drugs.

Inside the car they found a backpack allegedly containing around 25 grams of suspected crack cocaine, around 19 grams of suspected fentanyl, and a loaded firearm with extra ammunition, according to police.

See How Much This Fall River Intersection Has Changed in a Decade

Well this is surely a blast from the past. While exploring Google Maps' street view feature recently, I came across an old still from 2012 mixed in with the more recent ones. It showed an almost decade-old look at Fall River's New Harbour Mall, which is now dead and has been replaced by the stores at the SouthCoast Marketplace. The more I looked around the intersection on William Canning Boulevard, the more I began to see remnants of the past, some that may now be long-forgotten for some. This Fall River intersection has changed so much in the past near-decade, but if you're needing a little look in the rearview to see how far it's come, check out some of the following stills.
