The streets of Cape Cod are a little cleaner today as a large-scale drug bust results in a hefty haul for the Barnstable Police and the DEA. On April 23, Charles Curtis, a 36-year-old from Cotuit, was cuffed and stuffed on drug trafficking and possession charges.

During a search warrant executed at Curtis's residence, authorities seized over 90 grams of cocaine, 9 pounds of marijuana, and a stash of cash. As they conducted the raid, the Barnstable Police Department’s Investigative Services Unit, K-9 Unit, and the Drug Enforcement Administration Cape Cod Resident Office, identified Curtis as a significant cocaine supplier in the region.

The Barnstable Police Department reported Curtis now faces charges for Trafficking a Class B substance (cocaine) 36-100 grams and Possession to Distribute a Class D Substance (marijuana) Subsequent Offense. After putting the cuffs on him, they took Curtis to the Barnstable Police Department for booking.

Curtis, who was held on a $100,000 cash bail, made the trip to court for an arraignment at Barnstable District Court on April 24, as reported by law enforcement officials. The culmination of a lengthy investigation, yesterday's search warrant and collar underscores the continued efforts to stem the tide of drugs flowing into Cape Cod.
