YORK, Maine (NEWS CENTER) – The MDEA says a Cornish man has been arrested and charged with selling crack cocaine in York County Friday.
27-year-old Daniel Smith was arrested for drug trafficking after a six-month investigation by Drug Enforcement Agents.
Sheriff’s deputies and drugs, agents said they found approximately 17 grams of crack cocaine and 2.8 grams of Heroin in Smith's possession during his arrest. Smith was wanted for failing to appear in court, unrelated to the MDEA investigation.
During a search of Smith's home at 124 Maple Street in Cornish, agents seized another 128 grams of crack, 2.5 grams of heroin, a semi-automatic handgun and $2000 in suspected drug proceeds. Agents also seized Smith’s 2008 Cadillac SUV. The estimated street value of the crack and heroin is $15,500.
Smith was taken to the York County Jail on $25,000 cash bail. Police say the investigation is ongoing and others associated with Smith and his drug distributions have been identified. Additional arrests are expected, according to police.
