Drug bust at Kennedy Shriver family estate.

A drug-dealing group used a Cape Cod area residence owned by the Eunice Kennedy Shriver family as their headquarters, authorities revealed on Thursday.

Two men from Cape Cod kept large quantities of fentanyl at the Hyannis Port, Massachusets home and sold the narcotics to other drug dealers, according to the Barnstable Police Department.

Authorities arrested 29-year-old Troy Monteiro and his 26-year-old girlfriend, Ariel Perry, after they followed the coupled from their apartment in New Bedford to the home, the New York Daily News reported.

Monteiro tried to flee the scene to recover 200 grams of fentanyl, with an estimated street value of $40,000.

The man was charged with two counts of drug trafficking and conspiracy to violate a controlled substance.

Perry has also been charged with conspiracy to violate a controlled substance and hindering a police investigation after she reportedly tried to destroy evidence while her boyfriend was being arrested.

Investigators later arrested Trevor Rose, 29, at the residence and charged him with one count of drug trafficking. Police said the property’s keeper — whose identity has not been revealed — allowed the suspects to use the home as a drug distribution hub.

All suspects remain in custody on $100,000 bail.

The home is situated just a short distance from the Kennedy Shriver family estate in Hyannis Port.

Shriver was the sister of the late Senator Ted Kennedy and former President John F. Kennedy. She had five kids with the late Sargent Shriver, who was President Richard Nixon’s ambassador to France between 1968 and 1970.
