A New York man pleaded not guilty to charges of drug trafficking after State Police found more than 1,000 oxycodone pills in his car, officials said. Amaury Pena, 28, was arraigned Tuesday in Dudley District Court, said Tim Connolly, a spokesman for the Worcester district attorney’s office. Pena was arrested just after midnight Monday on Interstate 84 East in Sturbridge when a trooper noticed the license plate on his 2006 Acura was covered in snow, State Police said in a statement. The trooper searched the car and found 1,249 oxycodone pills, State Police said.
