NICKERSON STATE PARK

Travel the road to the upper campgrounds in Nickerson State Park and you may think for a moment that you have been magically transported to the Berkshire Hills or the piney woods of the Carolinas. Nowhere in sight are the sand dunes and salt marshes usually associated with Cape Cod. Instead, you are surrounded by woods that slope down to the banks of eight crystal clear fresh water ponds. Yet, if you walk or bicycle through the woods, you will find no rivers or streams feeding the ponds. These are “kettle ponds,” among more than 300 formed as glaciers retreated from the Cape over 10,000 years ago. Completely dependent on groundwater and precipitation, the water level in the ponds fluctuates from season to season and year to year.

Press Release January 24, 2015 On January 23, 2015, 27 year old Joel Morris of Centerville, MA was arrested by Barnstable Police Detective on charges of Enticing a Child under 16 years of age, Posing a Child for Nude Photographs with Lascivious Intent, and Possession of Child Pornography.  Morris was also charged with Possession of a Class D Substance (Marijuana) with Intent to Distribute and Possession of a Class C Substance (Hash Oil/Dabs) With Intent to Distribute.    Morris?s arrest is the result of a month long investigation by the Barnstable and Sandwich Police Departments that arose from a complaint from a high school student.  Additionally, in an unrelated matter, the Barnstable Police Department had received a cybertip relative to Morris? activities.  The complaints were very specific and suggested that the 27 year old Morris has been enticing high school age girls to participate in photo shoots.  Morris claims to have a photography business called ?Diamond Flash Photography?.  The investigation suggested that Morris distributed Marijuana, Hash Oil, and cash to those that posed for him.  The photo shoots have been reported to include the photographing of young girls in various inappropriate poses.  Evidence indicates that Morris utilizes different names/online profiles such as Joel and Jay Mackenzie, JoelfromCape, and greenlava7 on internet sites such as Facebook, Snapchat, and Instagram to communicate with the victims.  Sexually explicit images that have been sent via these applications have been recovered during the investigation.        Yesterday (1/23) a search warrant was executed at Morris?s Centerville residence.  Detectives recovered approximately a pound of Marijuana, over 200 grams of Hash Oil (dabs), $2,000 cash, along with several computers, hard drives, mobile phones, and photography equipment.  Morris was arrested on the above charges and is being held at the Barnstable PD on $10,000 cash bail.  He is scheduled to be arraigned at Barnstable District Court on Monday January 26, 2015   Barnstable Police Detectives are in the process of conducting forensic examinations on the digital devices seized from Morris.  We are strongly encouraging anyone who may have interacted with Morris, Diamond Flash Photography or any of the online profiles mentioned above to contact Barnstable Detective Kevin Connolly at 508-958-6522 or Sandwich School Resource Officer Christa Cabral at 774-2746765.
