5 arrested in Wareham after parking lot drug complaints

Apr 12, 2018

Wareham Police arrested five people this past week on heroin charges after receiving complaints about drug dealing in a convenience store parking lot.

Two men, David Daggett, 31, of East Wareham, and Carlos Gonzalez, 30, of East Wareham, were arrested on April 5. On April 11, two men, John Sulfaro, 29, of Onset, Ronald Cappola, Jr., 23, of Plymouth, and one woman, Rachel Silva, 21, of Kingston, were arrested.

All were arrested following police surveillance of the 7-Eleven on Barker Road in East Wareham.

Police said on April 5, detectives saw Daggett and Gonzalez meet in the parking lot and then enter the woods behind the store to conduct a suspected drug transaction. Both then entered a car, which was searched and found to have what police believed to be heroin. Daggett was charged with possession with intent to distribute a Class A substance (heroin) and conspiracy to violate the controlled substance act. Gonzalez was charged with the same.

On April 11, detectives were again conducting surveillance and observed what appeared to be a drug transaction involving three people in two cars. A search of the cars uncovered what appeared to be heroin, Suboxone and $1,568 in cash.

Sulfaro and Cappola were both charged with possession of a Class A substance (heroin) and conspiracy to violate the controlled substance act. Silva was charged with possession of a Class B substance (Suboxone) and conspiracy to violate the controlled substance act.

Great job and many thanks to the Wareham Police!  If they can catch this many of them from one place in such a short time, imagine just how much of this activity goes on!  Sad and disgusting.  Oh yea, they must have got the  female's age wrong.  She looks 12 not 21.  Look at the little kid!  Mom & Dad must be proud!

Just watch and look in any of the parking lots you will see plenty.

Great job once again to our Police, but also to the person that reported this activity. Its a sad state when young people feel this is the only thing they have in life, with soo many opportunities today, they choose drugs. These 5 are so young, and could have a very promising future, I hope this event turns at least one of them around, and that their family gets involved and gets them the help they need. Because if someone does not step in, we could very possibly see them next in the obituaries.

7-Eleven on Barker Road in East Wareham!  Oh no, I just realized that is the same location as the well known Tedeschi's in Shangri La; on what I thought was Glen Charlie Road.  I used to think of that as a nice happy variety store that we could let kids walk to for candy & ice cream.  Guess not!  My daughter and a friend asked if they could walk there last summer for a slushy.  I said no at that time, only because it was getting dark.  From now on it's a permanent no, no matter what time of day.  Nice...something else off-limits to our good kids because of bad things.  Nobody wants their kids around this!
