Brewer man accused of selling heroin from his home

By Ryan McLaughlin, BDN Staff

BREWER, Maine — A Brewer man is facing a pair of felony drug charges after he was nabbed earlier this month in a heroin trafficking investigation, police said.

Sean Ragsdale, 50, had allegedly been selling the drugs out of his Brewer home, according to Deputy Chief Jason Moffitt.

Moffitt said Ragsdale sold the drug to undercover police officers on two occasions. He was arrested without incident at his home on Sept. 10.

Brewer police Officers Liz Kelley and Fred Luce had received information earlier in the month that Ragsdale may have been dealing heroin, the deputy chief said, and a subsequent investigation led to him selling the drugs to undercover police on two occasions.

Ragsdale is facing two charges of aggravated trafficking in cocaine, a Class A felony punishable by up to 30 years in prison.

According to court archives printed in the Bangor Daily News, Ragsdale was charged with assault in 2010 and criminal threatening in 2008.

He is being held at the Penobscot County Jail. Moffitt said Ragsdale’s arraignment date is scheduled for Nov. 13.
