Police arrested three men and seized more than $51,000 worth of marijuana, prescription narcotics, and cash, in a morning raid on an Oak Bluffs house on Thursday, October 10.
An investigation by Martha's Vineyard Drug Task Force detectives Nick Curelli and Mike Snowden led police to 7 Sea Glen Road, off Edgartown-Vineyard Haven Road, where members of the Oak Bluffs Police Department, State Police, and the drug task force, executed a search warrant about 10 am.
Arrested were Ryan Dunbar, 20, who lived at the Sea Glen address, William Rogers, 20, also a resident, and Sean Geddis, 20, of Edgartown.
Police said they seized approximately six pounds of high grade marijuana, 199 Percocet pills, and approximately $15,000 in cash from Mr. Dunbar. They estimate the street value of the marijuana at $30,000 and the pills at $6,000 to $10,000.
Police said they seized small amounts of marijuana and prescription narcotics from Mr. Rogers and prescription narcotics from Mr. Geddis.
The house is owned by Deborah L. Harris, according to assessors records. Police said they have been investigating Mr. Dunbar for some time, but he moved into the house on Sea Glen Road only recently.
The three men were arraigned Friday in Edgartown District Court.
Mr. Dunbar was charged with possession with intent to distribute marijuana, narcotics trafficking, and conspiracy to violate drug laws. He was ordered held on $5,000 bail, and remained in custody at the Dukes County Jail Tuesday afternoon.
Mr. Rogers was charged with possession to distribute marijuana and other narcotics, and conspiracy. He was released on personal recognizance bail.
Mr. Geddis was charged with possession with intent to distribute marijuana and conspiracy. He was released on personal recognizance.
The court entered not guilty pleas for the three men on all of the charges, and ordered them to return to court on November 8 for a hearing.
Mr. Dunbar and Mr. Geddis are already facing drug charges in a separate case, according to court records. They were arrested after police stopped Mr. Dunbar's vehicle in Edgartown this past July. In that case, they seized nearly one pound of marijuana and $5,669 in cash, according to the police report.
