AUGUSTA, Maine — Agents from the Maine Drug Enforcement Agency’s South Central Task Force have arrested two Skowhegan men on aggravated heroin trafficking charges, Cmdr. Peter Arno said Wednesday.
Arrested were Dominic Deon Currie, 24, and 52-year-old David Sincyr, Arno said. Both men are being held at Somerset County Jail.
According to Arno, Wednesday’s arrests are the result of an investigation that has been going on for several months into the distribution of heroin and other drugs from a North School Street residence in Skowhegan.
“Earlier today, investigators conducted a traffic stop on a vehicle occupied by Dominic Currie in Skowhegan,” Arno said in a news release. He said the vehicle was being driven by Dominic Currie’s father, Dwayne Currie, 42.
“In searches of the vehicle and of the younger Currie, agents located approximately nine grams of heroin, with a street value of $3000,” Arno said. Based on that seizure, Dominic Currie was arrested on the heroin trafficking charge, a Class A felony. The older Currie was arrested on outstanding warrants, he said.
After the arrests, investigators searched the single-family home on North School Street where Dominic Currie has been living. The home is also occupied by the owner, David Sincyr, Arno said.
More heroin and other evidence consistent with drug trafficking was found, Arno said. As a result, Sincyr also was charged with aggravated heroin trafficking.
All three men were taken to Somerset County Jail in Skowhegan, Arno said, adding that the investigation continues and more arrests are likely.
Assisting with the investigation were the Skowhegan Police Department, the Somerset County Sheriff’s Office and the Maine State Police, Arno said.
