TWO DRUG TRAFFICKERS SENTENCED FOR CAPE COD HEROIN TRAFFICKING CONSPIRACY

 

BOSTON – Two men, formerly of Hyannis, were sentenced yesterday in federal court in Boston for their roles in a heroin trafficking operation on Cape Cod.

Anthony Hall, 31, was sentenced by U.S. District Court Chief Judge Patti B. Saris to 30 months in prison and three years of supervised release. In January 2017, Hall pleaded guilty to conspiracy to distribute and possess with the intent to distribute heroin and possession of heroin with the intent to distribute.

Richard Serriello, 29, was sentenced by U.S. District Court Judge Mark L. Wolf to 30 months in prison and five years of supervised release during which time he is forbidden from living on Cape Cod. In September 2016, Serriello pleaded guilty to possession of heroin with the intent to distribute.

In October 2015, federal investigators determined that Nauti-Block leader Denzel Chisholm and his co-conspirators were responsible for a significant quantity of the heroin being distributed on Cape Cod. Serriello purchased large quantities of heroin from Chisholm. In May 2015, Serriello was arrested after a high-speed motorcycle pursuit, wherein police officers recovered nearly 400 grams of heroin from Serriello’s motorbike. Hall, in turn, stored heroin for co-conspirators Christopher Wilkins and Chisholm. Hall also sold heroin to his own customers, including a customer from Martha’s Vineyard. Investigators ultimately seized heroin from this customer, which led, in part, to Hall’s arrest.

In total, 19 members and affiliates of the Nauti-Block were charged with narcotics and firearms offenses as part of the federal investigation. Eighteen have been convicted, including Chisholm, who was convicted by a federal jury.

    You do realize that the end of this article kinda discloses who the “CI” in the case is. I’m sorry I’m just thinking of the person who talked safety. Say it was only one person on marthas vineyard etc that he served. That makes it not so safe for said person.

    Do you realize this is the exact, word for word, press release from the US Attorney’s office? And that they intended for it to be published… and that, according to them, it was okay to publish?
