BANGOR, Maine — Six people were arrested, including a New York City drug trafficker, in a crack and heroin bust Monday night at a Spring Street residence, according to the Maine Drug Enforcement Agency.
Arrested were Terrell Owens, 43, of Brooklyn; Jason McLaughlin, 34, Melissa Clark, 33, David Carr, 23, and Lucy Mardosa, 23, all of Bangor; and Hugh Hill, 49, of Corinth, MDEA Cmdr. Peter Arno said.
The arrests were the result of a monthlong investigation into the sale of heroin and crack cocaine at the residence, Arno said.
A search warrant was executed by MDEA agents and Bangor police at 4 p.m. Monday, resulting in the seizure of 90 grams of crack cocaine and 20 grams of heroin worth $16,000, Arno said. Other alleged evidence of drug trafficking also was seized.
Undercover drug agents have purchased crack from individuals during the course of the investigation, Arno said.
Arno said Owens has a lengthy criminal history in New York, and he was charged with aggravated trafficking in schedule drugs.
McLaughlin, Clark and Hill were charged with aggravated drug trafficking, Carr was charged with possession of schedule drugs, and Mardosa was arrested on a warrant for failing to pay fines, Arno said.
A 10-year-old girl living at the apartment was placed into the custody of the Department of Health and Human Services.
All six suspects are being held at the Penobscot County Jail. More arrests are possible.
