CORINTH (NEWS CENTER Maine) — Drug agents on Wednesday arrested two men after seizing more than an ounce in drugs and two loaded firearms from a home in Corinth.
According to Public Safety spokesperson Steve McCausland, agents from the Maine Drug Enforcement Agency conducted a multiple-week investigation into reports of heroin and crack cocaine sales from a home on Ledge Hill Road in Corinth, which on at least two occasions included sales to undercover agents directly from the home's resident.
MDEA agents, troopers and county sheriff's deputies on Wednesday raided the home with a warrant and seized more than 28 grams of crack cocaine, 4 grams of heroin, a loaded 12-gauge shotgun, a loaded Glock 9mm pistol and $8,000 in suspected drug proceeds.
Agents arrested Shawn Bowman, 46, of Corinth, and Angel Lugo, 30, of Bethlehem, Connecticut.
Bowman was charged with two counts of unlawful trafficking in crack cocaine; aggravated trafficking in crack cocaine; and possession of a firearm by a felon.
Lugo was charged with aggravated trafficking in crack cocaine.
Both were at Penobscot County Jail as of Thursday afternoon.
The investigation remained open, McCausland said, and more arrests were possible.
