Two Arrested for Distributing Heroin
Barnstable police arrested two individuals for allegedly selling heroin out of a Hyannis home.
Following a two-month investigation Barnstable Police and the Barnstable Street Crimes Unit obtained a search warrant for 40 Spring St. in Hyannis. Police searched the home Thursday afternoon and arrested 30-year-old Carrie Turner and 24-year-old Justin Saunders. Police allege the pair sold heroin out of the home.
During the raid Saunders fled into a back room of the home, but was soon found by officers. Turner was arrested without incident.
According to a press release, police confiscated two small bags of heroin, suboxone, distribution paraphernalia, and about $730.
Saunders was charged with possession of a class A substance (heroin) with intent to distribute. Saunders has a lengthy criminal history that includes previous drug trafficking charges.
Turner was charged with possession of a class A substance (heroin) with intent to distribute, possession of a class B substance (suboxone). Turner is already facing charges related to another drug raid in the home in April 2012, when she was arrested for possession of crack cocaine with intent to distribute.
Both suspects are being held at the Barnstable Police Facility and will be arraigned today in Barnstable District Court.
