Couple Arrested for Narcotics Distribution

As a result of surveillance done by the Sandwich police to prevent illegal narcotics activity, two people have been arrested and a third faces a court summons.

On April 16, Sandwich police were conducting surveillance of parking lots in South Sandwich when they witnessed a drug transaction between the occupants of two vehicles. The vehicles were subsequently stopped and searched with the assistance of Yarmouth Patrolman Sean Gannon and his drug-sniffing K-9.


While searching the vehicles and the four occupants, police discovered several grams of cocaine, several grams of marijuana, five Suboxone pills, and $846 in cash.

Anthony Diaz, 34, of Main Street in Mashpee was charged with Class B drug possession with intent to distribute (cocaine), distribution of a Class B drug (cocaine), and conspiracy to violate the controlled substance act. Naomi Hendricks, 25, same address, was charged with possession of a Class B substance (Suboxone).

Police declined to name a Plymouth woman, 29, who will be summoned to court on charges of conspiracy to violate the controlled substance act.

A passenger that was in her vehicle is not being charged.
