Cocaine and accordions
The organizer of Cotati’s yearly accordion festival was arrested in his Petaluma home for possessing three pounds of cocaine, police said.
Scott Goree, 65, was arrested Dec. 19 on suspicion of possession of cocaine for sale. The Petaluma Police Department, working with the federal Drug Enforcement Agency, had been investigating narcotic sales in town, which apparently led them to Goree.
Law enforcement obtained a search warrant for Goree's home in the 20 block of Mission Drive in Petaluma, where they allegedly discovered approximately three pounds of cocaine and a small amount of cash. Goree has been the executive director and producer of the Cotati Accordion Festival since 2005.
