HYANNIS – [DEVELOPING] – A woman who was recently arrested just over a year ago in Hyannis for carrying a switchblade and possessing 7 baggies of white rocks, believed at the time to be crack cocaine, is in trouble again after being pulled over by a Barnstable Patrolman early this morning.
Shortly after 1:00 a.m., Jessica Ewing, age 25, of Hyannis, was stopped while operating a silver Ford sedan on Route 28 in the area of Ridgewood Ave. Computer checks and a phone call revealed Ewing had an “extraditable warrant” out of Rhode Island, and that the authorities in the neighboring state were willing to come get her…
Ewing was subsequently arrested and transported to Barnstable Police Headquarters for booking.
Meanwhile, and as you will see in the following HN Video, Barnstable Patrol Officers began to dig deeper and requested a member of the Barnstable County Sheriff’s Crime Scene Investigation Unit to the scene in order to take photos. The silver Ford sedan was then towed back to BPD Headquarters as the investigation continues.
Just over a year ago, on September 26, 2018, Ewing was arrested during a traffic stop on Yarmouth Road after a state trooper reportedly noticed her making furtive movements inside of a vehicle during a traffic stop. Upon further investigation, Ewing fessed up, telling the trooper, “Yes, I’m sorry. I have a switch blade that I didn’t want to get in trouble for.” Ewing reportedly then handed the trooper a gun shaped switchblade which she had concealed in the front of her pants.
The trooper then had a Barnstable Police patrolwoman respond to the scene to help search the suspect, when it was then reportedly learned Ewing also had 7 small bags of white rocks concealed inside her pants, believed to be crack cocaine. The “crack” was reportedly packaged in a way consistent with being ready for narcotic sales. Ewing was charged with Possession to Distribute a Class B Drug, along with Carrying a Dangerous Weapon. The aforementioned information was according to a police report filed in Barnstable District Court… and the outcomes of those charges are unknown at the time of this report… and furthermore, all suspects are presumed innocent until proven guilty in a court of law.

It’s uncertain what this morning’s extraditable warrant out of Rhode Island was for, but according to a write up in the Warwick Post, on May 7, 2019, Rhode Island State Troopers arrested Jessica Ewing during a traffic stop on Route 95 in West Greenwich, charging her with License or Permit Required for Carrying a Pistol, Possession of Cocaine, Possession of Crack Cocaine, and Disorderly Conduct.
