Cape Cod Cop Busted on Drug Charge

Ex-Mashpee police officer busted on drug charge
The Cape Cop Times by MATTHEW M. BURKE - May 21, 2009

MASHPEE, MA — A former local police officer, who resigned from the force in February, has been arrested on drug charges, according to police. Joseph Kelley, was arrested Tuesday afternoon after narcotics detectives from the Barnstable Police Department executed a search warrant at his Cotuit home. The 33-year-old was charged with one count of trafficking in heroin, morphine, or opium, their salts, or derivatives, after officers allegedly found 200 oxycodone tablets, as well as an undisclosed amount of other drugs described as various pills and liquids. The arrest comes just days after Barnstable County correctional officer Ryan R. Carroll, 31, of Bourne was arrested after allegedly buying $400 worth of OxyContin from an undercover police officer in Bourne. "I think it's a sad story," Mashpee police Chief Rodney Collins said when reached by phone yesterday. "I hope he gets all of the professional help that he needs." A call made by the Times to Kelley's cell phone went straight to voice mail, and he did not respond to messages seeking comment. Collins said Kelley was a member of the police department for about seven or eight years. He said Kelley resigned in February. Collins declined to comment on Kelley's service record or the reasons behind his resignation. Kelley had been living in Mashpee while employed by the town, Collins said, but, according to the police report on his arrest, had moved to Cotuit. Barnstable police officers referred media inquiries to the detectives division yesterday, but no one could be reached for comment. According to the police report, narcotics detectives obtained a search warrant for Kelley's home as a result of an "ongoing OxyContin distribution investigation." Police executed the search warrant at about 2 p.m. Tuesday and found Kelley at home, the police report states. After 22 grams of oxycodone were found, he was arrested on the trafficking charge and held on $40 bail. The other substances found at the home were sent to a crime lab for analysis, the police report states. Kelley is expected back in court for a pretrial hearing June 17, according to court records.

It is a crime and it is still going on now. I personally know of some people being accused of dealing that didn't and others are dealers are being paid off by the police. There is so much corruption it isn't funny.

Made a mistake in my comment. There are dealers that are paying off police not they are being paid off by police.

Cops also pay off others because they are also involved in the heroin trade from state police, dirty judges etc. They also had Crystal Perry murdered for given some1 who Joseph Kelley's sister Tinea Gilbert set up to be murdered. That whole family is filled with junkies and hookers. There all a bunch of fuck ups.
