Two charged for dealing prescription narcotics

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.

    How does he have a prescription for 180 Oxycodone pills every 15 day. days meaning he is consuming 12 every. I would double check the supplier of the pills. It sounds to me that it would be what we call in Florida a Pill Mill!

      have you ever seen the ads for Aleve ? They talk about the competition where you have to take 2 pills every 4 hours.. so lets say you get up at 8 — 2 pills- 2 pills at noon, 4, 8 and before bed at 12 , then, perhaps you wake up from the pain in the middle of the night and take 2 more.. that’s 12 every day..
      So, who’s to blame?
      Perhaps the “patient” circles the “10″ option for “how much pain are you in”
      Perhaps the doctor is on the take
      perhaps the insurance company is on the take
      perhaps Rush Limbaugh has made this the standard.
      perhaps some people really need 12 pills a day for pain.
      perhaps you shouldn’t tell other people what they can ingest, or how much pain relief they need.
      I am not endorsing the black market of narcotics,,
      perhaps this has more to do with drug companies wanting to sell their drugs ?

    We are all aware that substance abuse is an issue in our community… At what point are we going to address the doctors who keeps writing the prescriptions and the pharmacies that continue to fill them. Value life over the dollar.

      I think your comment of “value life over the dollar ” Is terrific.
      if only the people who could care less about the environment would embrace that idea.

    The first step towards overcoming addiction is probably the hardest by far. The first step is admitting you have a problem, and in so many cases, regardless of how extreme their addiction problem is, or no matter how much they have suffered and shattered the lives of those who love them, addicts will deny they have a problem.
