    A fugitive drug kingpin was nabbed in Lawrence hauling 7 kilos of heroin in his car, according to police, who later scooped up two more kilos of the Class A substance and more than $340,000 cash in his home.

    Alexander Dume-Santana, 35, was arrested Thursday afternoon after cops said they noticed him driving recklessly on Willow Street. When they stopped him, they said they discovered 7 kilos of heroin in his vehicle. They later searched his house, where detectives discovered another two kilos of heroin, a 9 mm handgun and $340,000 cash, authorities said.

    “This arrest puts a large dent in the drug supply in Lawrence,” police Chief James Fitzpatrick said. “We will continue to work with our law enforcement partners on all facets of the drug problem in this area.”

    Dume-Santana was ordered held on $500,000 cash bail, but his bail was revoked on an open cocaine trafficking case out of Lawrence. He was also arraigned as a fugitive from justice on a drug distribution charge out of New Hampshire.
