PORTLAND, Maine — A Connecticut man who police said in May was “a substantial dealer” of heroin in the Brunswick area has been indicted by a Cumberland County grand jury for drug trafficking.

Angel Quinones, 21, of Wethersfield, Conn., was indicted on a Class B charge of trafficking in scheduled drugs.

Quinones was arrested at a the Knight’s Inn motel in Brunswick on May 20 after Maine Drug Enforcement Agency investigators allegedly seized approximately 5 grams of heroin, packaged for sale, Brunswick Police Detective Rich Cutliffe said at the time.

Quinones was “a substantial dealer in the area,” according to Brunswick Police Detective Sgt. Marty Rinaldi.

The Brunswick Police Department, MDEA and Sagadahoc County Sheriff’s Office had been investigating Quinones since January, according to Cutliffe.

“We believe he’s been coming up on a regular basis since the beginning of the year, staying for a week at a time and selling heroin,” he said. “He’s come up at least five times that we’re aware of, stayed approximately a week, and each time he brings 15 to 20 grams of heroin.”
