Six arrested during early morning break-in
YARMOUTH - Yarmouth Police arrest six subjects during an alleged early morning break in. Police say about 1:20 AM this morning while conducting building security checks at the Great Island Shopping Plaza Yarmouth Police Patrol Investigator Karen Ballinger reported hearing a female scream and a loud crash coming from a residence on Winslow Gray Road directly behind the plaza.

Ptl. Investigator Ballinger further observed a black Nissan with multiple passengers back out of the driveway of the home in question at an unsafe speed and in an erratic manner. Patrol Investigator Ballinger stopped the vehicle on Winslow Gray Road and identified all six persons in the vehicle.

Fellow Yarmouth Police Patrol Officers Richard Fichter Jr., Michael Kramer, and Paul Mellett as well as Patrol Sergeant Michael Bryant arrived and provided back-up protection and investigative assistance. Patrol Officer Fichter went to the residence and encountered the lessee of the home who stated that his home had just been broken into and that he was about to call 911. An on-scene investigation discovered that a window had been smashed-the interior of the house ransacked-and a television set knocked over.

Barnstable County Sheriff's Department Crime Scene Investigator Matt Smith was called to the scene and assisted in crime scene analysis and photography. Police say the on-scene investigation determined that all six subjects had entered the home and fled just prior to being stopped. All six subjects were placed under arrest and transported to Yarmouth Police Headquarters. All were scheduled for arraignment in the Barnstable District Court today. The six were indentified as 18-year old Melissa M. Saragoza of South Yarmouth, 18-year old Jessica J. Juliet of Plymouth, 17-year old Rodney S. Gomes of Dennis, 19-year old Ashley E. Bright of Plymouth, 20-year old James Thomas of South Dennis, and 18-year old Matthew Julian of Dennis. The six were all charged with Felony Breaking and Entering in the Nighttime, Felony Malicious Destruction of Property Over $250, Felony Larceny Over $250.

Traffic stop leads to drug bust
- An expired inspection sticker leads to a traffic stop that ends with a drug bust. Yarmouth Police report that on Thursday afternoon at about 2:10 PM Ptl. Sergeant Patrick S. Carty stopped a 1993 Chevrolet Lumina on Route 28 in West Yarmouth after observing the rejected inspection sticker for safety defects.

Upon speaking with the operator and two passengers, Ptl. Sergeant Carty with assistance from Ptl. Officers Olivier Naas and Richard White as well as Ptl. Investigator Christopher Kent reportedly detected a small packet of heroin on the floor of the vehicle next to the male passenger in the back seat. A search of the subject later indentified as 24-year old Norman Piotte (right) of Chicopee led to the discovery of an electronic digital scale with white powder on it and $299.00 cash.

Further investigation reportedly led to the discovery of a small packet of marijuana in the possession of the front female passenger identfied as 21-year old Christy Hennigan of Marstons Mills (left).

Hennigan was charged with possession of class D (marijuana). Piotte was charged with possession of class A (heroin) and possession with intent to distribute class B (cocaine).  Both were scheduled for arraignment in the Barnstable District Court on Friday. Mugshots furnished by Yarmouth PD.
