PRESS RELEASE October 31, 2018 Early morning suspicious activity on Main St. Hyannis leads to drug arrest. At about 4:30 am on October 31st, Officer Kyle Phelan was on patrol in Hyannis when he observed a male subject walking on Main St. near Pearl Street. The subject met up with two other subjects, also on foot, and Phelan observed what he believed to be a hand-to-hand drug transaction just prior to the subjects splitting up. Phelan encountered the first subject a couple of blocks away and identified him as 24-year-old Derek W. Jones of Plymouth. During the investigation Jones reached into his pockets for what was identified as a police style expandable baton. The item was secured by Phelan and further investigation revealed Jones to be in possession of several individually packaged bags of a white powdery substance believed to be cocaine. Jones was placed under arrest and transported to the Barnstable Police Station where he was charged with Possession of a Class B Substance with Intent to Distribute. A total of 21 bags containing the white powder substance, approximately a half-gram in weight each, were discovered in Jones’ possession along with two cell phones and over $800 cash. Jones was later transported to Barnstable District Court for arraignment.

PRESS RELEASE October 31, 2018 Two Centerville men were arrested last night just hours after an assault on Longview Dr. in Centerville. At the time of the arrest, the suspects, 25-year-old Daniel J. Barnicoat of Centerville and 20-year-old Nicholas J. Miller, of Centerville, were found to be in possession of a stolen firearm. On 10/30/18 at about 3:30 pm, the Barnstable Police were called to a Longview Dr. home in Centerville where officers found a 29-year-old Mashpee man who had allegedly been beaten by Barnicoat and Miller. Witnesses told police the victim and the two suspects were co-workers and the fight stemmed from a disagreement the previous day. When the victim showed up at the Centerville home yesterday afternoon, Barnicoat and Miller met him in the front yard and allegedly began to punch and kick him numerous times. As witnesses telephoned the police, Barnicoat and Miller fled in a motor vehicle. Later the same day at about 7:45 pm, Barnicoat and Miller returned to the home on Longview Dr. where Barnstable Police officers encountered them sitting in a motor vehicle in the driveway. Both Barnicoat and Miller were taken into custody without incident. During the arrest, officers viewed what was identified as a loaded semi-automatic pistol on the vehicles back seat. The weapon had been previously reported stolen in Wareham several months ago. Barnicoat was charged with Assault & Battery by means of a Dangerous Weapon, Assault & Battery, Unlawful Possession of a Firearm and Unlawful Possession of Ammunition. Miller was charged with Assault & Battery by means of a Dangerous Weapon, Assault & Battery, Unlawful Possession of a Firearm, Unlawful Possession of Ammunition and Receiving Stolen Property valued over $1200. Miller also had outstanding warrants for Assault & Battery, Threats and Vandalism out of Barnstable, Assault & Battery on a Family or Household Member and Violation of a Protective Order out of Bridgewater, and seven counts of Violation of a Protective Order, Disorderly Conduct, and Vandalism out of Falmouth. Both Barnicoat and Miller were transported this morning to Barnstable District Court for arraignment. The victim was transported from Longview Dr. to Cape Cod Hospital where he was treated for what appeared to be cuts, abrasions and contusions to his head and face. He was discharged late this morning.

WEATHER ADVISORY UPDATE FOR SATURDAY, 10/27: NOAA has provided the following update for Saturday’s storm: The upcoming coastal storm will cause winds and seas to build up rapidly Saturday morning and early Saturday afternoon. We are still expecting a storm surge of 1 to 2 feet around the time of high tide with seas of 10 to 15 feet. Widespread minor coastal flooding is forecast along the eastern Massachusetts coast, especially from the North Shore to coastal Plymouth County, but also including Cape Cod (Bay and Ocean sides), Martha's Vineyard, and Nantucket. This means many vulnerable shore roads will have inundation of up to one foot and some may require brief closures around high tide. Some of the more vulnerable coastal communities such as Scituate could experience pockets of low-end moderate coastal flooding. The attached graphic shows what we mean by minor or moderate coastal flooding. Keep in mind the highest surge (2.0 to 2.5 feet) is expected to occur late Saturday afternoon, well after high tide. Although it is not likely at this time, more pockets of moderate coastal flooding could occur if the winds and seas build up earlier than forecast. For the South Coastal communities, there may be a few pockets of minor coastal flooding or splashover, but the impact is expected to be minimal. We do not expect any coastal flooding to occur during the high tide late Saturday night, which is about one foot lower than the Saturday afternoon high tide. Winds and seas are expected to subside Saturday night. Refer to our web site ( for the latest information, including any Coastal Flood Advisories that may be issued later today. Here are some other useful links: NWS Boston Coastal Flood Portal (Latest forecasts and reference inundation maps) Tide Gauge Observations and NWS Boston Forecasts: (Locations with squares are tide gauge and/or forecast locations)

WEATHER ADVISORY: NOAA has provided us with the following information regard the potential for minor to moderate coastal flooding on Saturday afternoon (10/27): For this Saturday, we are expecting widespread minor coastal flooding along the eastern Massachusetts coast and the Islands during the early afternoon high tide, with perhaps a few pockets of low-end moderate coastal flooding, especially in more vulnerable locations such as Scituate and the North Shore. At Boston, the astronomical high tide is 11.1 feet at 1:40 PM Saturday and at Nantucket is 3.8 feet at 2:41 PM Saturday. We are currently forecasting a storm surge of 1.0 to 1.5 feet. The strongest winds (40-50 mph) are expected to occur around the time of high tide. This will limit how much the seas can build (10 to 15 feet) but if the timing changes, and the stronger winds arrive much sooner (not likely right now), the storm surge could reach 2.0 feet which would result in more areas of moderate coastal flooding. This should be the only high tide cycle that will be impacted. The Saturday night high tide is about one foot lower, and by then, wind speeds are expected to be much lower.

Good information available at the Community Substance Abuse Forum tonight at the HYCC. Thanks to all our our community partners and the Barnstable Youth Commission for helping to make this event happen!

WEATHER ADVISORY: Please read the below announcement sent out by the Massachusetts Emergency Management Agency regarding the potential for heavy rains and flooding as the remnants of Micheal pass the area. Be aware of the possibility of up to 3-6 inches of rain during the next 12-16 hours. Severe rain may cause some flooding to low laying areas and large puddles on the roadway should be avoided. MASSACHUSETTS EMERGENCY MANAGEMENT AGENCY SITUATIONAL AWARENESS STATEMENT DATE: October 11, 2018 TIME: 10:30 AM SUBJECT: Localized Flash Flooding and Gusty Winds Possible Today/Tomorrow Situation A cold front passing through the region tonight, together with Tropical Storm Michael passing south of Nantucket on Friday, will bring potentially heavy rainfall and gusty winds to the New England region today and tomorrow. Pockets of heavy rain are possible this afternoon and evening with the primary focus shifting into far southeast New England late tonight and Friday. Widespread rainfall totals of 1 to 2 inches are forecast with locally higher amounts of 3-6 inches possible, with the greatest risk falling across far southeast New England. Areas that receive heavier rainfall amounts are at risk of localized flash flooding. Northerly wind gusts of 35 to 50 mph are possible late tonight into Friday across far southeast New England with the greatest risk across the Cape and Islands. While the National Weather Service has high confidence that periods of heavy rain will occur, especially across far southeast New England, it is still uncertain if heavy rain will persist long enough across the interior to result in localized flash flooding, or if areas of 3-6 inch rainfall will impact southeast New England or remain just offshore, sparing the region of potential flooding. Impacts: · Pockets of heavy rain may result in localized flash flooding, with the highest risk across far southeastern New England. · Northerly wind gusts of up to 50 MPH across far southeastern New England on Friday may result in minor tree damage and isolated power outages.
