SANFORD, Maine — Two men are behind bars after Maine Drug Enforcement agents and Sanford police seized about $15,000 worth of cocaine, according to Maine Department of Public Safety spokesman Stephen McCausland.
McCausland said in a news release that Justin MacLean, 27, and Jason Nolan, 32, both of Sanford were arrested Monday and taken to York County Jail. Both men were charged with aggravated trafficking in cocaine.
MDEA Supervisor Stephen Borst said agents purchased cocaine from Nolan recently at his Brook Street home and on Monday, Sanford police stopped a vehicle driven by MacLean leaving Nolan’s residence and a search turned up 5 ounces of cocaine and crack in the vehicle.
MacLean also lives in Haverhill, Mass., and is believed to be transporting the drugs to Sanford. Nolan later was arrested at his home and cocaine, a scale and packaging materials were seized from the home, McCausland said.
Both men are due in York County Superior Court on Dec. 14. Borst said Nolan is suspected of selling cocaine in Sanford over the last year.
