BANGOR, Maine (NEWS CENTER) -- Maine Drug Enforcement Agency says four people were arrested in overnight raids in Bangor and Dedham.
MUGSHOTS:Oxycodone and heroin arrests
Seized were heroin, oxycodone and over $13,000. The drugs originated from New York and were due to be sold in Penobscot and Hancock counties.
MDEA agents, assisted by Bangor Police and Homeland Security Investigation Agents Thursday night searched the apartment of Robert Wood Jr., age 46, and Nicole Kelley, age 34, on Langley Street, after evidence was gathered the pair were trafficking in the prescription painkiller Oxycodone. Agents seized eight Oxycodone tablets and $500. Both Wood and Kelley were arrested and transported to the Penobscot County Jail charged with Class B Trafficking in Schedule W Drugs and Possession of Schedule W Drugs.
As part of the same investigation, drug agents and State Police later conducted a search of a lakefront house on Granite Road in Dedham during the early morning hours. Seized from that location was approximately 15 grams of heroin, 144 Oxycodone tablets, $13,000, and two handguns. The street value of the Oxycodone was $7,200 and the heroin would have sold for $4,000.
Charged as a result of the Dedham search were Jonathan Baez, 29, of Bronx, New York and Jerald Hiland, 34, of Old Town. Each are charged with Aggravated Trafficking in Schedule W Drugs, both Class A felonies. Baez's charges are elevated due to the guns seized and Hiland's charges are elevated as the result of a December 2012 drug conviction of Trafficking in Schedule W Drugs for which he received a 4 year sentence, with all but 9 months suspended. Both Baez and Hiland were transported to the Hancock County Jail and both were due in court today.
