August 23, 2016 - Male Arrested on Cocaine Distribution Charge
On Tuesday, August 23rd, 2016, at approximately 6:15 pm, officers assigned to the Martha’s Vineyard Drug Task Force executed a search warrant that was issued by the Edgartown District Court. The search warrant was issued to search a 2010 Infinity FX35 and the registered owner, Everton G. Facey, formally of Jamaica, for cocaine and proceeds relating to the distribution and sales of cocaine. Mr. Facey has been under investigation by the Martha’s Vineyard Drug Task Force for the past several months for his involvement in cocaine distribution.
Officers initiated a motor vehicle stop and executed the search warrant as Mr. Facey left his residence located at 35 Eleventh Street South. The location of the stop was at the intersection of Edgartown-Vineyard Haven Road and Eleventh Street South in the Ocean Heights area of Edgartown. A fully marked Edgartown Police cruiser stopped traffic at the intersection as Mr. Facey approached Edgartown Road in the Infinity FX35.
Officers then approached Facey and escorted him out of the vehicle. As Mr. Facey was assisted out of the vehicle several small plastic bags that contained a white powdery substance believed to be cocaine fell out of the vehicle and on to the ground. A search of Mr. Facey’s vehicle and the area where he was stopped revealed 24 small plastic bags of a white powdery substance believed to be cocaine.
Officers then applied for a second search warrant from the Edgartown District Court for Mr. Facey’s residence, 35 Eleventh Street South, where he rents a room. A search pursuant to the second search warrant revealed drug paraphernalia and packaging materials which are consistent with drug distribution.
As a result of this investigation, Everton G. Facey was placed under arrest for Possession of a Class B Substance (Cocaine) with the Intent to Distribute. He is currently being held at the Dukes County Jail on $5,000 bail and is scheduled for arraignment in the Edgartown District Court on Thursday, August 25, 2016. ... See MoreSee Less
