3 charged with selling heroin, crack cocaine in Brunswick

BRUNSWICK, Maine (NEWS CENTER) — Two New Yorkers and one Mainer have been charged with trafficking heroin and crack cocaine out of a home in Brunswick.

The arrests were made Nov. 7 on Front Street by drug agents, county deputies and local officers following a month-long investigation by law enforcement, according to the state Public Safety spokesperson.

Authorities' search of the Maplewood Manor mobile home turned up 20 grams of crack cocaine, 8 grams of heroin, $5,600 in suspected drug proceeds, a .40-caliber handgun and 12-gauge shotgun.

All three suspects were charged with Class B unlawful trafficking in schedule B drugs: 40-year-old Matthew Chase of Brunswick; and Tireek Donato, 28, and Gerell Haynes, 32, of Brooklyn, N.Y.

The spokesperson said agents detained Chase on Front Street. The other two were arrested at the home.

Donato and Haynes were taken to Cumberland County Jail and bail was set at $10,000 cash for each. Chase was summonsed on his charge.

Agents said the Front Street homeowner was not present at the time of the search warrant.

The attorney general's office is reviewing the charges.
