The case has been investigated by the State Police Detectives Unit assigned to the Office of the Cape and Islands District Attorney and the Yarmouth Police Department.

The Grand Jury also indicted Phillip R. Horton for Trafficking in Oxycodone in an amount between 14 - 28 grams and five (5) counts of Distribution of a Class D substance, marijuana.

They are both being held without bail at the Barnstable County Correctional facility and will be arraigned at a future date in Barnstable Superior Court.
