YARMOUTH - A motor vehicle stop on Route 28 in West Yarmouth Monday morning ended in more than a traffic citation for a West Yarmouth man. According to a release from Yarmouth police, Officer Andrew Coville pulled a car over just after 11 a.m. Monday for a  traffic infraction.

According to Officer Coville, the unidentified driver and passenger, identified as 22-year-old Kevin Daniel Robie of 817 Route 28 in West Yarmouth, were acting suspiciously and he called for backup.  When backup in the form of three more officers including a K9 unit arrived, Officer Coville reportedly discovered an unidentified quantity of heroin on Robie, along with $2,535 in cash and other items consistent with drug distribution, according to police.

Robie was placed under arrest and transported to the Yarmouth Police Station where he was booked and charged with felony possession of a Class A substance (heroin) with intent to distribute. He was released on $500 cash bail and was arraigned in Barnstable District Court on Tuesday.

Kevin Robie was arrested by Barnstable police in March after officers pulled over the stolen Prius he was driving on Lumbert Mill Road. During that arrest, Robie also reportedly had heroin on him along with almost $5,000 in cash.
