BARNSTABLE – [DEVELOPING] – At about 10:30PM last evening, Barnstable and state police detectives were conducting an investigation (possibly serving some type warrant) at a second floor hotel room inside the Best Western on Route 132 when the situation became potentially dangerous.
According to emergency radio transmissions, a tier one hazmat team needed to respond for what was described as “possible Fentanyl exposure.”
Room 214 reportedly had dangerous drugs “all over the place” and detectives were not taking chances.
Official details have yet to be released, but in light of recent Fentanyl exposure concerns, detectives were not going to risk anyone coming in contact with the deadly narcotics.
(It remains uncertain whether or not any detectives were harmed last evening.)
The following video highlights the scene which remained active between the approximate hours of 10:30PM to about 2:30AM…
The Best Western Hotel appeared to be at near full capacity… and all of the guests remained inside their rooms during the ordeal.
(Also note, as you’ll see, clearing a room of dangerous drugs is a lot of work… requiring a lot of specialized resources… which seems to be the direction we’re going in this fight against dangerous narcotics… Take a look, the hazmat suits, and even the boots, all need to be disposed of after each incident…)
This is a developing story and HN will provide updates as they become available…
