WEST YARMOUTH — A Brockton man wearing a GPS monitoring bracelet was arrested Monday after being found with significant quantities of crack cocaine and fentanyl during a traffic stop, according to Yarmouth Police.

The arrest occurred after Yarmouth Police were alerted to drug activity in a West Yarmouth neighborhood.

Upon arrival, officers noticed a vehicle backed into a dead-end with two occupants.

The passenger fled on foot into a nearby residence, while the driver, later identified as Joshua Taylor, 33, of Brockton, sped off toward Hyannis.

Following a brief pursuit, detectives and members of the Pro-Active Anti-Crime Unit stopped the vehicle on Yarmouth Road in Hyannis for traffic violations.

K9 Gauge, a trained narcotics detection dog handled by Detective Ambrosini, signaled the presence of drugs on Taylor.

A subsequent search revealed 24 grams of fentanyl and 37 grams of crack cocaine.

Taylor was taken into custody and faces charges of Trafficking Fentanyl, Trafficking Cocaine, Failure to Stop/Yield, and an outstanding warrant for his arrest.

Taylor has been previously implicated in drug possession and distribution cases.

He was detained overnight without bail and appeared for arraignment at Barnstable District Court on Tuesday morning.
