After executing search warrants Wednesday morning, members of the Martha’s Vineyard Drug Task Force arrested two people on charges of illegally selling oxycodone pills.
Bryan A. Cimeno, 45, of Morgan Way in Edgartown appeared in Edgartown District Court Wednesday afternoon, for arraignment on a charge of possession with intent to distribute oxycodone, a prescription narcotic. He was also charged with conspiracy to violate drug laws.
The court entered not guilty pleas for him, and bail was set at $200.
According to the police report, Mr. Cimeno had 64 oxycodone pills in his vehicle at the time of his arrest, and during booking at the Dukes County Jail, police discovered 10 more oxycodone pills concealed in the brim of his hat.
“He has a legitimate prescription for 180 oxycodone pills every 15 days,” Det. Sgt. Chris Dolby said in court, acting as prosecutor for the Commonwealth. “These pills are being diverted and sold.”
Police say Mr. Cimeno’s wife, Carrie A. Cimeno, 39, of Morgan Way, Edgartown will be issued a summons as a co-defendant in the case and ordered to appear in court to face drug charges at a later date.
Also arrested was Brianna E. Combra, 23, of Edgartown-West Tisbury Road in West Tisbury. She was released on personal recognizance, after her arraignment on possession with intent to distribute oxycodone, and conspiracy. Police seized 37 oxycodone pills and $779 in cash from her when she was arrested.
