September 12—PEABODY—A Peabody man faces methamphetamine trafficking and other drug charges after police say he left a bag full of pills and powder at an adult business on Route 1 last Sunday morning.

William Decotis, 37, of 286 Newbury St. (Route 1), Peabody, was arrested Thursday afternoon on a warrant following an investigation by Peabody police detectives.

It was just before 1 a.m. on Sept. 4 that police received a call from an employee at the Amazing Superstore, also located on Route 1 in Peabody, about a bag that had been abandoned by a customer.

When police watched the store’s security video, they recognized Decotis from previous interactions with officers.

In addition to the meth smuggling charges, Decotis faces multiple additional counts of possession of Class B and Class E substances that come from both what was in the bag and what police found during his arrest Thursday and a subsequent search of his house.
