Man Arrested for Trafficking Fentanyl & Evading Police

Barnstable Police arrested a man after he fled from officers during the execution of a search warrant at a home in Centerville.

On Wednesday, detectives searched the home of Charles Curtis; police encountered Curtis in the living room where he confronted officers, then fled the scene.

Curtis led detectives on a brief foot pursuit before units were able to place him into custody.

Back at the home, the search yielded 26 grams of fentanyl, two pounds of marijuana, drug packaging materials and approximately $11,000 in cash.

Upon further investigation, it was discovered a “stash house” existed in Cotuit. That home was searched on Friday and led to the seizure of $15,000 in cash, 4 grams of cocaine, numerous rifles and ammunition, and large scale drug packaging materials.

Curtis was charged with Trafficking Fentanyl, Possession of Marijuana with Intent to Distribute, Attempting to Disarm an Officer, and Resisting Arrest. Additional charges may occur as a result of the Cotuit search warrant.

Curtis was arraigned in Barnstable District Court Thursday, where he is being held on $75,000 bail; he's also being held on a parole violation.
