Traffic stop results in arrest of alleged heroin dealer

– Yarmouth Police report that on Monday at 11:03 a.m., Proactive Anti-Crime Unit (PACU) Officers Nicholas Ambrosini and Christopher Van Ness observed a gray 2016 Ford Fusion MA 3MA854 operating erratically northbound on Station Avenue in South Yarmouth. With the assistance of Yarmouth Police Drug Detection Officer Sean Gannon and his K9 Thor, Officers attempted to stop the vehicle but it continued on at a moderate to slow rate of speed on to Starbuck Lane and Seminole Road when suddenly the operator threw a large amount of white powder out of the window.

Officers saw the cloud of powder dissipate into the air and the operator finally stopped. Investigation at the scene determined the operator to be a man well known to police with 20 prior adult charges in Massachusetts; many of them drug related as well at 26 as a juvenile.

The suspect, Trevor Anthony Gonsalves-Rose, 28, of East Providence, RI was placed under arrest for failure to stop for a Police Officer and failing to signal. He was transported to Yarmouth Police Department Headquarters.

The vehicle was towed to Yarmouth Police Department Headquarters and members of the Barnstable County Sheriff’s Department Crime Scene Unit were able to recover 3 grams of the remaining white powder that had been blown all over the inside of the vehicle. The powder tested positive as heroin and the Gonsalves-Rose was being held in custody at YPD Headquarters on $1,040.00 cash bail on an additional charge of possession with intent to distribute a Class A substance. He will be due for arraignment in the Barnstable District Court on Tuesday morning.
