  • Westerly teenager charged with felony drug possession

    WESTERLY — A police officer who was patrolling in the area of Wilcox Park on bicycle Saturday saw what was described as a possible drug transaction that led to the arrest of an 18-year-old on a felony drug possession charge.

    Marcus S. Comolli, of 32 Rockridge Road, Westerly, is charged with felony possession of heroin after an officer said he viewed an exchange between two teenagers, one 18 and the other 17. Police said they asked Comolli what he had placed in the backpack he was carrying and he responded that it was “nothing.” According to a report on the arrest, Patrolman Marshall Johnson asked Comolli if he had any drugs or weapons in his backpack to which he responded that he had only clothing.

    Johnson said inside the front pocket of the backpack he located several cigarette packs and inside one of the packs was a small baggie, which “contained a whitish powdery substance.” The substance was later field-tested and was positive for heroin.

    Comolli was transported to the Westerly police station where he was processed. He was held overnight and arraigned on Sunday morning and released for a hearing in 4th Division District Court at a later date.

    No information about the 17-year-old, a minor, was available.
