WAREHAM — An 18-year-old Wareham man was arrested and charged with trafficking cocaine following a multi-agency narcotics investigation, authorities said Thursday.

Jesse Rebelo was initially arrested on Nov. 5 by Barnstable Police Patrol Officers for trafficking over 18 grams of cocaine.

He was arraigned in Barnstable District Court on Nov. 7 and released on $1,000 cash bail.

The Barnstable Police Department’s Investigative Services Unit, together with the Massachusetts State Police Gang Unit South, the Cape & Islands State Police Detective Unit, and the Wareham Police Department, continued the investigation into Rebelo’s activities.

The probe established that Rebelo was a key source of crack cocaine for street-level dealers in Hyannis.

On Dec. 14, officers from the collaborating agencies executed a search warrant at Rebelo’s home and on his person.

They seized approximately 40 grams of crack cocaine, six pills suspected to be methamphetamine, an undisclosed amount of U.S. currency, materials used for cutting and packaging drugs, and several scales.

Rebelo is now facing two counts of distribution of a Class B substance (cocaine) and trafficking cocaine between 36 grams and 100 grams.

After being booked at the Wareham Police Department, he was transported to Wareham District Court for arraignment.
