Dennis man busted for heroin in Yarmouth

BAKER COMPWEST YARMOUTH – The Yarmouth Police Department reports that on Wednesday at 4:40 p.m. Yarmouth police officers responded to a citizen complaint of a man acting suspiciously and trespassing in the area of a home on West Yarmouth Road in West Yarmouth.

At approximately 4:52 p.m., Yarmouth Police Department Proactive Anti-Crime Unit (PACU) Officer Nichols Ambrosini spotted the suspicious man walking on West Yarmouth Road near the intersection of Old Town House Road. The man ran off when he saw Officer Ambrosini and finally was stopped near the intersection of Dana’s Path.

Officer Ambrosini identified the man as Timothy Lee Baker III, 22, of Dennis and conducted an on-scene investigation that revealed four separate stacks of money in his pockets totally $1,206. The suspect was known to police and has a criminal record of illegal drug use and distribution. Yarmouth Police Drug Detection Patrol Officer Sean Gannon and his dog, Thor, arrived at the scene. K9 Thor indicated drugs concealed on the subject’s person. A subsequent check of the suspect found a clear plastic bag containing brown powder. The bag was seized and the suspect placed under arrest and transported to Yarmouth Police Department headquarters.

A check of the bag found that it contained three individual baggies of a brown powder. The total gross weight of the three baggies was 16.2 grams. Using a TruNarc Raman Spectrometer, Yarmouth Police Department Drug Enforcement Detective Scott Lundegren tested the powder and confirmed it as heroin with a street value of approximately $1,700. The drugs, the $1,206 in cash and two cell phones were seized as evidence.

Baker, who has 25 prior charges in Massachusetts, was held at Yarmouth Police Department Headquarters on $2,540 cash bail and is scheduled for arraignment on Thursday in the Barnstable District Court charged with Possession to Distribute Class A Heroin.
