The following is the actual press release from the office of the US Attorney:
CAPE COD MAN SENTENCED TO 20 YEARS IN PRISON FOR HEROIN AND SUBOXONE TRAFFICKING
BOSTON – A member of the Nauti-Bloc gang was sentenced [yesterday] in federal court in Boston for his role in trafficking heroin and suboxone.
Tyrone Gomes, 31, of Hyannis, was sentenced by U.S. District Court Chief Judge Patti B. Saris to 20 years in prison and eight years of supervised release. On April 5, 2017, Gomes pleaded guilty to conspiracy to distribute and possess with the intent to distribute 100 grams or more of heroin, possession of heroin with the intent to distribute, and conspiracy to distribute suboxone.
In October 2015, federal investigators determined that Gomes, Denzel Chisholm – the Nauti-Block leader, and other co-conspirators were responsible for a significant quantity of the heroin distributed on Cape Cod. Gomes received large quantities of heroin from Chisholm, which he sold to other drug dealers and individual users. On March 6, 2016, Chisholm arranged to sell Gomes 12 grams of heroin in exchange for cash and 10 suboxone strips. The suboxone was ultimately destined for Browning Mejia, an inmate at MCI-Norfolk and an associate of Chisholm. As a result of the investigation, agents were able to stop Gomes’ vehicle and recover 12 grams of heroin from Gomes.
In April 2016, 13 members and affiliates of the Nauti-Block gang were charged with federal drug trafficking and firearms offenses.
Both Gomes and Chisholm also face charges in Massachusetts state court related to the September 2015 murder of Christine Ferreira at a rest stop on Route 6 on Cape Cod.
