BANGOR, Maine — Two men accused of selling cocaine in the Stonington area remained at the Penobscot County Jail on Friday unable to make bail.

Davis S. Bradshaw, 20, of Stonington and Anton Cannatella, 30, of New York City were arrested Aug. 31 at a Bangor bus station and charged with unlawful trafficking in cocaine, according to the Maine Drug Enforcement Agency.

Bradshaw’s bail was set at $5,000 cash or $50,000 surety and Cannatella’s was set at $20,000 cash or $50,000 surety in their first court appearances by video conference on Sept. 2 at the Penobscot Judicial Center.

The duo’s arrest was the result of an investigation into complaints that Bradshaw was selling cocaine in the Stonington area, MDEA Division Commander Darrell Crandall said Thursday in an email response to a request for information.

Agents seized a plastic bag containing nearly two ounces of cocaine with a street value of more than $5,000, according to the MDEA, and $2,276 in cash.

On Aug. 31, agents from the Down East District Task Force and the North Central District Task Force set up surveillance at the bus station on Union Street in Bangor. Cannatella arrived on a bus and was picked up by Bradshaw, according to Crandell.

If convicted, each man faces up to 10 years in prison and a fine of up to $20,000.

Bradshaw also has been charged with a probation violation on a previous conviction for aggravated assault.
