During a several month investigation, the United States Postal Service and Massachusetts State Police Cape Cod Drug Task Force initiated a case into the illegal trafficking of narcotics from Puerto Rico to the Cape Cod area.

During the investigation, several individuals were identified as being involved in the conspiracy. Two of the subjects were identified as Adam SHERMAN (DOB: 05/12/1980) and Gabriel A. DIAZ (DOB: 08/24/1988). Approximately 2 kilograms of a substance believed to be cocaine as well as several thousand dollars were seized during the investigation.

 Thanks to the Plymouth County SPDU and Wareham Police for their assistance.
