FALL RIVER (WBSM) — A Fall River man facing indictments for heroin and cocaine trafficking is wanted by police due to his failed court appearance.

A Superior Court Judge issued an arrest warrant for Willie Young, 56, after he failed to appear in court Monday for the start of his trial.

Young was arrested in February 2020 after a search warrant was executed at his McClure Place apartment. According to the Bristol County D.A.'s office, he had been free on personal recognizance while awaiting trial and is known to have ties to New York.
