PROACTIVE ANTI-CRIME UNIT ARRESTS FENTANYL USER

On Thursday, February 22, 2018, at 2:50PM, Yarmouth Police Department Proactive Anti-Crime Unit Officer Nicholas Ambrosini observed a vehicle traveling on Route 28 in an erratic manner and conducted a stop on the vehicle in the parking lot of the Speedway at Baker's square in West Yarmouth.

Officer Ambrosini spoke with the operator who started shaking un-controllably as she searched through her purse for her license and vehicle registration. Officer Ambrosini observed multiple fresh track marks on the driver’s knuckles which is a common area for drug users to inject heroin-fentanyl.

Officer Ambrosini knew the driver to be a heroin user who was arrested last month by the Yarmouth Police Department for possession of heroin.

Yarmouth Police Patrol Officer Erica Wenberg arrived on scene and a check of some pill bottles in the driver’s possession found 3 bags of heroin/fentanyl and several Adderall pills with no prescription.

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

At the station, 3 additional clear bags with a white powdery substance were located in her possession.

All of the bags were tested at Yarmouth Police Department Headquarters and tested positive for fentanyl.

The suspect was processed and is scheduled for arraignment today in the Barnstable District Court.

YARMOUTH POLICE ARREST MAN FOR MAKING VIOLENT WORKPLACE THREATS

On Thursday, February 22, 2018 at 1:30PM, the Yarmouth Police Department met with management of the Republic Waste Services located at 61 Commonwealth Avenue in South Yarmouth regarding an employee who had made threats over the phone last week threatening extreme violence against fellow workers in the workplace.

The company took immediate action which included initial suspension last week and actual termination effective on this date.

Yarmouth Police Department Patrol Officer Alexander Xiarhos completed an initial investigation and a follow-up was immediately conducted by the Yarmouth Police Department Detective Division.

Yarmouth Police Detectives determined the suspect was a longtime employee who had previous incidents at work and no prior criminal record in Massachusetts and no License to Carry Firearms.

Yarmouth Police Department Detective Christopher Van Ness applied for and was granted a temporary arrest warrant for the arrest of the terminated employee—Rogelio Lopez Jr.—due to the threats uttered concerning the workplace violence.

With the arrest warrant in hand, Yarmouth Police Detectives VanNess and Michael Wells, along with Proactive Anti-Crime Unit Officer Nicholas Ambrosini, travelled to the Wareham Police Department and subsequently teamed up with Wareham Police Department Police Officers to Lopez’s residence in Wareham.

At 7:00PM Lopez was found in the home and placed under arrest. Lopez was transported to Yarmouth Police Department Headquarters for booking.

Lopez was advised of his Miranda Warning and provided a statement.

At the conclusion of the interview, Lopez was later bailed by the Bail Commissioner on personal recognizance after paying the $40 fee.

Lopez is scheduled for arraignment in the Barnstable District Court this morning.

Lopez was warned to stay away from the property and a police security detail has been hired by the company on a 24 hour basis until further notice.

Refer To Arrest: 18-166-AR
Arrest: ROGELIO LOPEZ JR
Address: 6 APACHE LN BUZZARDS BAY, MA
Age: 51
Charge: FELONY TERRORISTIC THREAT
