During the past two months, Detectives assigned to the WEB Task force have been investigating claims that a male party was selling MDMA also known as “MOLLY”, Marijuana and other narcotics in and around Whitman and the surrounding communities.  Throughout the course of this investigation Detectives developed probable cause that one such individual, later identified as Cole McCarthy 19 years of age, was arranging sales from the confines of his residence, located at #7 Patriot Lane in Whitman, as well has his vehicle to make narcotics deliveries and sales.   Upon developing probable cause that Mr. McCarthy was involved in narcotics distribution, WEB Detectives applied for and were granted two search warrants, one for the residence and a second search warrant for Mr. McCarthy’s vehicle.

At the conclusion of both search warrants Mr. McCarthy was placed under arrest and transported back to the Whitman Police Department to be booked and processed where he is being held on $1,040 cash bail.   The Detective who was nearly struck suffered no injuries and declined medical treatment.  At the completion of the search warrants, Detectives seized various items associated with Narcotics distribution, packaging material, scales and cutting agents commonly associated with MDMA. In addition to drug packaging and associated effects Detectives also seized:

  • Approximately 5.5lbs of Marijuana
  • Approximately 20 Grams of MDMA
