On Monday, May 22, 2017 at approximately 10:00 pm, Wareham Police patrol officers responded to Pond Edge Trail in the Crane Brook Landing neighborhood of Wareham, after alert neighbors reported a suspicious male in the area. While checking the area, officers noticed the reported male in a parked vehicle bearing New Hampshire license plates.

While speaking with the operator and sole occupant of the vehicle, who was identified as 29-year-old Eric Gilston of Portsmouth, NH, Sergeant Peter Flannery and Officer John Iacobucci noticed a large clear plastic bag containing marijuana on the passenger side floor. The bag contained approximately 1 ½ pounds of marijuana.

Further investigation led to the discovery of another bag also containing 1½ pounds of marijuana in the trunk of the vehicle. Sheets of paper with indications of drug transactions, including monies owed and paid, along with empty vacuum seal plastic bags and $850 cash were also discovered inside the vehicle.

Gilston was arrested at the scene and charged with Possession of a Class D Substance (Marijuana) with Intent to Distribute. He was scheduled to be arraigned Tuesday in Wareham District Court.
