OLD TOWN, Maine — Two people were arrested Thursday night after police found cocaine, heroin and cash at a residence.

Stephone Ross, 43, and Lisa Ouellette, 39, both of Old Town are both accused of trafficking in schedule drugs while Ouellette is also charged with violating bail conditions, Old Town police Sgt. Michael Hashey said.

An investigation initiated by Old Town police Officer Jordan Norton led to the arrests, Hashey said.

A bail search was conducted at Ouellette’s Main Street residence, and a search warrant later turned up 25 grams of crack cocaine, 1.5 grams of heroin, $1,500 cash, assorted drug paraphernalia and a firearm, the sergeant said.

Additional charges against the pair are pending, Hashey said.

Ouellette’s most recent brush with the law occurred last fall, when she was arrested on a cocaine possession charge after a traffic stop in October.

Ouellette and Ross are being held at the Penobscot County Jail. Maine Drug Enforcement Agency agents and Orono police assisted Old Town police with the bust.
