On Wednesday, August 1 at 4 p.m., Yarmouth Police Department Proactive Anti-Crime Unit Officer Sean Geary conducted a motor vehicle stop of a black Chevrolet Blazer MA 5HE687, registered to John M. Lopez of Hyannis, on Autumn Way in South Yarmouth.

Officer Geary observed a small bag of heroin in the vehicle. Geary further learned that a wanted person was currently inside a nearby home at 12 Amelia Way.

Yarmouth Police Officers went to the home and encountered Michael Geggatt and placed him under arrest.

Inside the home Police Officers observed in plain view a large amount of drug paraphernalia, syringes, cotton swabs, metal caps used for cooking heroin, and empty corner cut bags.

Police Officers also observed Michael Santos in the process of using heroin with a syringe in his hand and a small bag of heroin next to him.

Yarmouth Police Department Detectives arrived at the home and during a search of one of the rooms, Detectives and Police Officers observed Timothy Dafinee sitting on the floor of the bedroom and an unknown male at the door.

Seconds after opening the bedroom door, the male slammed the door on a Detective, striking him. The male subject then jumped onto the bed in an attempt to get away.

A Yarmouth Police K9 Officer assisted the Detective and fellow Police Officers and the attack on the Detective was overcome. Unfortunately during the attack, the Detective was stuck with a used hypodermic needle and was later treated at Cape Cod Hospital for this infectious exposure.

Dafinee and the male party, identified as Euclides Matias of Boston, were placed in handcuffs.

A search of the room was conducted and heroin was located in the room.

During a search of Matias, 2 large bags of heroin fell out of Matias underwear onto the floor. The two bags weighed approximately 32 grams.

Additional drug evidence was seized from the residence including $1,601 U.S. currency and a digital scale.
