Hyannis man arrested for possessing 16 lbs of marijuana

A Hyannis resident was recently taken into custody after authorities recovered a total 16 pounds of marijuana in his possession during a bust in Centerville.

According to reports, Barnstable Police arrested Shawn White, 37, after detectives found the 16 pounds of marijuana in the trunk of his vehicle on November 17. Detectives were initially notified of a suspicious package by a postal service employee. A K9 unit was dispatched to investigate the package, and the dog indicated that it did contain a narcotic. Officers then set up a controlled delivery to the intended recipient, whereupon they encountered White and discovered the rest of his supply.

White now faces charges of possessing a Class D narcotic, marijuana, with intent to distribute. White has been released on a $500 bail and awaits trial.
