Investigators have seized the alleged client list of a retired chief probation officer after his arrest late last week, when he was charged with cocaine trafficking. The suspect was arraigned on Monday at the Dukes County Courthouse and pled not guilty to trafficking more than 28 grams of cocaine, a class-b-substance, according to court documents found by a New York City Criminal Lawyer.

The suspect’s ledger allegedly contained the names of 20 persons, along with corresponding coke order amounts and drug debts. The Sargent further revealed that police have been getting tips about the suspect “for years.”

The 65-year-old former probation officer was arrested by members of the Martha’s Vineyard Drug Task Force and Oak Bluffs Police Department on Friday, March 18 at approximately 4:30 p.m., after they arrived, armed with a search warrant, to search the suspect’s property. Officers at the scene found 39 packages of cocaine on the suspect and on his property, and also found cutting agents used to package the cocaine, according to court records obtained by investigators from The Bronx and Westchester County.
