At approximately 1 p.m. members of the Yarmouth Police Department and the Massachusetts State Police Drug Unit, which included K-9 Detective Matt O’Brien of the Sandwich Police Department, assisted the United States Postal Inspection Service regarding a suspicious package.

K-9 Detective O’Brien’s dog, Koda, positively indicated to the presence of a narcotic odor coming from a package addressed to Rosa Herrera, 32, of West Yarmouth (photo above left). The package was sent from Orlando, Florida, via priority mail express. Herrera arrived at the South Yarmouth Post office to retrieve the package. She was positively identified, signed for the package and exited the post office.

She was then approached by police officers who inspected the package and found a Centrum Vitamin and Mineral plastic container with approximately 775 blue round pills marked M/30 inside (photo at right above). The pills were identified as 30mg oxycodone pills with an approximate street value of $30,000.

Herrera was advised that she was under arrest for trafficking a Class A substance (oxycodone). She was placed into handcuffs and transported to the Yarmouth Police Department where she was booked and processed. Herrera is due for arraignment in the Barnstable District Court on Monday.
