A man and a woman in their 20s were arrested early Friday morning in South Dennis on charges of possession with intent to distribute heroin, Dennis police said.
Dennis police detectives and Cape Cod Regional SWAT team members executed a warrant and raided a home at 9 Stewarts Ave. after a month-long investigation into suspicions of drug trafficking there, police said in a statement.
According to the statement, Nathan Rose-Morey, 25, of South Yarmouth, and Heather Bingle, 23, of Plymouth, were arrested inside the home at around 4:50 a.m.
The suspects were scheduled to be arraigned Friday in Orleans District Court, police said in a statement.
Dennis Police Sergeant John Emerson said he did not yet know the quantity or value of the heroin found in the home.
Emerson said neighbors in the area alerted the department to what they believed were suspicious activities occuring at the Stewarts Avenue address.
“The investigation was initiated by citizens’ complaints, which resulted in the undercover work,” he said. “It starts with citizens letting us know that there is a problem and providing us with information about different comings and goings from the house.”
Emerson said detectives expanded on the information the neighbors gave through their own investigation, but says the department is “blessed” to have a good relationship with some of its community members.Alyssa Creamer can be reached at firstname.lastname@example.org.
