Falmouth Man Faces Multiple Felony Charges

A Falmouth man is facing multiple felony charges following his arrest early Tuesday morning after a brief standoff with police.

Gregory Blake, 27, surrendered peacefully to officers at 94 Old Meetinghouse Road shortly after 4 a.m. after barricading himself inside since the night before.

Police received a report around 9:45 Monday night that a man had forced a woman at gunpoint to drive him from Dennis to Falmouth.

Falmouth Police were able to determine that man, Gregory Blake, had entered the residence on Old Meetinghouse Rd and was believed to be armed and dangerous and possibly suicidal. The Upper Cape Special Response Team, consisting of officers from Falmouth, Mashpee, and the Barnstable County Sheriff’s Department, secured the area and made multiple attempts to contact Blake. He finally surrendered without incident. Once in custody, officers searched the residence and found a shotgun and ammunition.

Blake was arrested and charged with Kidnapping, Assault with a Dangerous Weapon, Threats to Commit Murder, and Possession of a Firearm with a License to Carry.
