Barnstable Narcotics Detectives have arrested three people at the center of a lengthy Fentanyl distribution investigation.

Brian Whittemore, 56, of Skating Rink Rd in Hyannis, Jason McCarthy, 37, of New Bedford, and Jennifer Boucher, 43, also of New Bedford, were all charged with Trafficking Fentanyl. Boucher was also charged with Possession of Cocaine with intent to distribute.
