YPD and staties prevent additional narcotics from hitting Cape streets…
The following is the actual YPD press statement:
Yarmouth Police and State Police Drug Task Force Arrest West Yarmouth Heroin Dealer
On the afternoon of Friday, November 25th, 2016, at 2:15PM, Proactive Anti-Crime Unit Officer Christopher VanNess, Yarmouth Police Drug Enforcement Unit Detective Scott Lundegren, and members of the Massachusetts State Police Cape Cod Drug Task Force observed a gray 2005 Ford pickup truck (MA Reg 1XN226) traveling eastbound on Route 6 and conducted a motor vehicle stop as it entered on to Route 132 in Barnstable.
The lone occupant identified as Leslie Peterson began to cry and told the Police Officers that she was out on bail from her recent arrest on October 27, 2016 in Brewster for heroin and might be going to jail.
Peterson voluntarily pulled a knotted corner baggie containing five grams of tan powder from her bra. Peterson admitted that she travelled to Taunton and that she purchased six grams for $40.00 a gram as opposed to $100.00 a gram on Cape. A digital scale was also recovered from inside the vehicle.
Peterson reported that because of the price difference, she can make a profit on Cape Cod by traveling to Taunton for cheaper prices then re-selling it on the Cape.
Barnstable Police Department personnel arrived at the scene and Peterson was placed under arrest and transported to Yarmouth Police Department Headquarters. She was later bailed by the Bail Commissioner on personal recognizance and was scheduled for arraignment in the Barnstable District Court on Monday, November 28, 2016.
