HYANNIS – Two men were arrested Thursday by Barnstable Police after a search of their residence in Hyannis found 50 Oxycodone pills, a 22-caliber rifle and a 30 round magazine.

The residence search came after a month-long cocaine distribution investigation involving 19-year-old Flavio Gambarott-Santa.

Police say the investigation involved a series of undercover cocaine purchases and as a result, police obtained a search warrant for a room rented by Santa on Stetson Street in Hyannis.
