Southampton Town police announced today the arrests of two men last Thursday on multiple felony charges related to the alleged dealing of heroin.

Xavier Gee, 30, of Southampton, and Sebastian DeMartini, also 30, of East Hampton were arrested by the East End Drug Task Force, which combines detectives and officers from various law enforcement departments on the East End, under the direction of District Attorney Thomas Spota. Police described the investigation as "long-term." 

The two are accused of dealing narcotics in Southampton Town. Mr. Gee was charged with two counts of criminal sale of a controlled substance in the third degree. Mr. DeMartini was charged with possession of a narcotic with intent to sell, as well as possession of a narcotic.

They were arraigned on Friday in Southampton Town Justice Court. Bail was set for Mr. Gee at $2,000, and Mr. DeMartini at $20,000. Mr. Gee posted bail and was released. Mr. DeMartini did not immediately post bail and was taken to the county jail. He has since been released from custody, according to jail records.
