The Cape Cod Irish Village in South Yarmouth has had hundreds of Linemen from all over the USA and Canada staying at the resort at night resting up after working 16 hour days restoring power all over Cape Cod.

Today, the Linemen shipped out to head back to their homes and families and left all of these bags of food that had been prepared for them fresh every morning by the Staff at the Irish Village.

Tommy, the owner of the Irish Village, called the YPD and he helped feed our day shift personnel and sent these remaining stacks of bags of food to St. Joseph's House for the Homeless in Hyannis for those in need to have food for the night.

This has been a long and trying week for many of us here on Cape Cod...

Despite the troubles-- we are safe--and it helps remind us all of what life is all about.

Safe Travels Home Linemen!!!

On the evening of Thursday, March 15th, 2018, at approximately 8:45 PM, Proactive Anti-Crime Unit Detective Christopher VanNess patrolled the parking lot of the 99 Restaurant located on Berry Avenue in West Yarmouth.

This parking lot location has been the scene of several arrests for drug possession and drug distribution as well as drug overdoses.

Detective VanNess observed a white Chevrolet pickup truck (MA Reg 3JTV40) backed into a corner parking space that abuts the Speedway gas station.

Detective VanNess encountered the two subjects inside the truck. Yarmouth Police Department Patrol Officers Erica Wenberg and John Lanata, Jr. arrived and secured the operator identified as the owner of the vehicle, Christian Morecraft.

While removing the passenger, a corner cut baggie containing trace amounts of white powder was dropped from his closed hand.

The passenger identified himself as "Bobby Parris." Detective VanNess has had numerous encounters with Robert Parris and knew this was incorrect information and he was lying.

A Massachusetts EBT card in the name of Joseph Tucker was found in his front pocket.

A warrant check revealed an active warrant out of Barnstable District Court for Felony Larceny over $250.

Tucker was placed under arrest and transported to Yarmouth Police Department Headquarters.

Morecraft had a strong odor an alcoholic beverage emanating from his breath as he spoke and a sober friend came to retrieve both him and his vehicle.

During the booking process of Tucker, a small plastic bag was found clinched between the cheeks of his buttocks and dislodged.

The object revealing a corner cut baggie containing a white chunky powder. This subsequently tested positive for cocaine via the TruNarc Spectrometer.

All exhibits were seized and placed into YPD evidence.

Bail was set at $340.00 per the Bail Commissioner.

Tucker—who has 41 prior charges in Massachusetts—was held overnight and transported this morning for arraignment today in the Barnstable District Court.
