HYANNIS — A man who recently returned to the Cape after serving five to seven years in prison for trafficking cocaine was arrested again Thursday, this time for allegedly trafficking oxycodone, according to the Barnstable police.
Over the past month, Barnstable police narcotics detectives have been conducting an oxycodone distribution investigation targeting an apartment at the Cape Cross Roads Apartment complex in Hyannis.
The subject of the investigation was Shaun Miller, 25, according to a Barnstable police press release.
Detectives approached the apartment Thursday to execute a search warrant after Miller was observed entering the laundry room beneath his apartment.
The detectives saw Miller reaching behind one of the washing machines in the laundry room. Detectives caught up to Miller as he exited the laundry room and seized a plastic bag containing about 530 oxycodone tablets from his pocket.
The street value of the oxycodone is about $16,000, the press release states.
Miller was arrested and charged with trafficking oxycodone (28-100 grams). He was arraigned Friday at Barnstable District Court.
