PORTLAND, Maine — Three men and a woman were arrested in connection with a drug bust on Wednesday evening, according to police.

Christopher Lee, 52, of Portland; Gary Reynolds, 56, of Milbridge; Coleen Singer, 32, of Bangor and Omaid Shir, 25, of Portland were arrested, according to a statement from the Cumberland County Sheriff’s Office.

The four were arrested by the Maine Drug Enforcement Agency, according to the statement.

Lee and Reynolds are both facing two charges of possession of scheduled W drugs and violating conditions of release, while Singer is facing two possession of scheduled W drug charges.

Shir is facing the most serious of the charges, according to the statement, as he is accused of aggravated reckless conduct and failing to stop for a law enforcement officer.

Lee and Reynolds were being held at the Cumberland County Jail without bail, while Singer’s bail was set at $1,500 and Shir’s bail was at $50,000.

According to Bangor Daily News archives, Reynolds was among four people arrested in a drug bust in Gouldsboro in August. Reynolds was charged with felony heroin possession in that case.

In addition, Reynolds also served five years in prison following a drug arrest in 2005, according to the archives.
