Police arrested a Falmouth man Friday, October 11, for the possession of heroin/fentanyl with the intent to distribute.
Kyle D. Wallace, 30, was charged with possession to distribute a Class A drug after a search warrant was executed at about 6 AM on 59 Elm Arch Way, according to the Falmouth Police Department.
A narcotics investigation by the department led to the search warrant. According to the police report, multiple heroin/fentanyl users identified Mr. Wallace as a major supply source of heroin and fentanyl.
The Falmouth Police Department saw a spike in overdoses within the last three weeks, according to the police report, so it decided to make Mr. Wallace the “priority of the Detective Division.”
Investigators who searched the property said they found more than 10 grams of heroin combined with fentanyl. They also found digital scales and sandwich bags that were used to package the drugs, according to the Falmouth police.
Mr. Wallace allegedly told the police in an interview that he buys 10 grams of heroin/fentanyl daily from a woman in Taunton, and using a cutting agent, he turns it into 13 grams. He then told the police that he uses 5 to 6 grams a day. With the other 7 grams, he allegedly told police, “you know what I do with it.” When asked if he dealt the rest, Mr. Wallace allegedly said he wanted to speak with a lawyer.
According to the police report, that amounts to 70 grams of heroin/fentanyl a week, which he turns into 91 grams.
Police estimate he sells 49 grams to the Falmouth community every week, the report alleges.
Mr. Wallace’s bail is set at $100,000 and his pretrial hearing is scheduled for October 30.
