WAREHAM — Wareham Police have arrested a man for possession of crack cocaine in his Cranberry Highway motel room.

At approximately noon on Friday, March 23, Wareham Police detectives, assisted by patrol officers, executed a search warrant regarding the sale and possession of crack cocaine at Room 3 of the Village Motel on Cranberry Highway.

The target of the search warrant was 44-year-old Wareham resident David “DJ” Johnson, formerly of 20 Pires Street.

Upon entry into the motel room, detectives encountered Johnson and four friends seated at a table, on which sat eight pieces, or "rocks," of crack cocaine with a street value of $800. Also on the table was a digital scale, two glass pipes used for smoking crack, a folding knife, and multiple corner-cut sandwich bags, all of which Johnson claimed possession and ownership.

Johnson was placed into custody without incident and transported to Wareham Police headquarters for booking, then to Wareham District Court for arraignment on the criminal charge of possession of a Class B substance (cocaine) with intent to distribute.
