HARWICHPORT - On Thursday, Harwich police officers along with members of the Massachusetts State Police Cape Cod Task Force and a Barnstable County Sheriff's Department K9 Unit, executed a state search warrant at a home at 368 Route 28 in Harwich port, according to a Harwich Police release. The search warrant was the result of a three-month investigation into cocaine distribution by two residents of the home, 22-year-old Gianni Trombetta and 24-year-old Jilliam Prudeaux.

Before executing the search warrant at 368 Route 28, Trombetta was observed by police selling narcotics in a local parking lot. Trombetta was placed under arrest on a previously-obtained arrest warrant for distribution of cocaine. During the arrest, officers found approximately 18.5 grams of cocaine on Trombetta, police said. He was then transported to Harwich Police Headquarters for processing.

During the subsequent search of the residence at 368 Route 28, officers seized an additional 10 grams of cocaine.

Jillian Prudeaux was arrested and charged with possession with the intent to distribute a Class B substance (cocaine).  She was also transported to Harwich Police Headquarters for processing.

HARWICH - Wednesday morning, around 5:30 a.m., Harwich Police Officers Robert Hadfield and Eric Geake were dispatched to a home on Randolph Lane after the department received a 911 hang-up. Upon arrival, the officers spoke with a man suffering from cuts to his hands and bruises on his face consistent within having been struck in the face, according to a Harwich Police release.

The man's wife told the officers that her son, 37-year-old Derek Morgan of East Harwich, had had an argument with his wife the night before, prompting police to respond to Morgan's home. After the argument, Morgan left and slept in the woods overnight. At 5 a.m., he went to his mother's home on Randolph Lane to escape the cold, police said.

Police were told that at his mother's home, Morgan and the assault victim, his stepfather, engaged in a heated argument over family issues and Morgan punched his stepfather in the head several times.  He fled into the backyard as police arrived. 

Officers Geake and Hadfield found Morgan in the backyard--upset and crying. He was taken into custody and transported to Harwich Police Headquarters where he was booked and charged with felony assault and battery with injury on a person over 60.  Morgan was then transported to Orleans District Court for arraignment.

Morgan's stepfather's injuries were treated by members of Harwich Fire and Rescue.
