Wareham Police have arrested two people on multiple drug charges.

On Thursday, July 13th at approximately 2 p.m., Wareham Police detectives, Massachusetts Parole Department officers, Falmouth Police detectives, and Massachusetts State Police searched the Wareham area for former Wareham resident and current New Bedford resident Rory Barrows, age 39, who was wanted for past drug related charges.

At approximately 4 p.m., Barrows was noticed as a passenger in a vehicle in the Cranberry Plaza on Route 28. Upon approaching the vehicle, detectives noticed a plastic baggie containing approximately 3.5 grams of suspected powdered narcotics, and several cell phones.

During a search of Barrows, detectives discovered five individual bags of powder (approximately 12 grams) later identified as fentanyl, and a bag containing approximately three grams of a substance identified as cocaine.

Detectives and officers at the scene also discovered another two grams of suspected fentanyl in the immediate area of the operator of the vehicle, 43-year-old Kelli Aflague of Bourne. She was also in possession of $1,456 cash, which was seized as proceeds from the sale of illegal narcotics.

Rory Barrows, 39, of 1757 Acushnet Ave. New Bedford was arrested and charged with the trafficking in fentanyl; possession with intent to distribute a Class B substance, subsequent offense; and conspiracy to violate the controlled substance act.

Kelli Aflague, 43, of 4 Colonial Road, Buzzards Bay was charged with possession of a Class B substance (fentanyl); and conspiracy to violate the controlled substance act.

Both were scheduled to be arraigned on the criminal charges today at Wareham District Court.
