Search warrant leads to cocaine charges in Hyannis

hartwilliamHYANNIS – Barnstable Police report that on Wednesday, narcotics detectives executed a search warrant at 102 Compass Circle in Hyannis. The search warrant was the result of a month-long investigation by Detective Thomas Chevalier for cocaine distribution by Rondy Foggie, 34, of Hyannis and her boyfriend, William Hart, 29, of Brockton MA.

Upon execution of the search warrant at 10 a.m., detectives approached Hart as he entered his Mercedes SUV in the driveway of 102 Compass Circle. Hart was able to get into the SUV and then drove across the lawn of the home and fled the scene. Detectives were able to follow Hart onto Hinckley Road where he rammed a police vehicle and continued to refuse to stop. After ramming a second police vehicle, his Mercedes became inoperable and he fled on foot. Deputy Chief Balcom and Detective Ginnetty then chased and caught Hart in the back yard of a home on Hinckley Road.

After Hart fled Foggie’s home on Compass Circle, Detective Sergeant Butler and Detective Chevalier were able to make entry where she was detained. A search was conducted inside the home and detectives located approximately 116 grams of crack cocaine inside one of Hart’s sneakers.

William Hart (pictured) was charged with trafficking in cocaine (over 100 grams), 3 counts assault and battery with a dangerous weapon (motor vehicle), 2 counts assault with a dangerous weapon (motor vehicle), failure to stop for a police officer, resisting arrest and conspiracy to violate the controlled substance act.

Police say William Hart has an extensive criminal record involving firearms and illegal narcotics. In 2009 he was convicted in Barnstable Superior Court for distribution of cocaine and received a 2-year sentence. In addition, that same year, he was convicted in Suffolk Superior Court for assault with intent to kill, assault and battery with a dangerous weapon and possession of a firearm and was sentenced to 5-7 years.

Hart was arraigned in Barnstable District Court and held without bail pending a dangerousness hearing.
