ELLSWORTH, Maine — Two Tremont men are facing charges from separate incidents in which they recently were caught allegedly selling drugs, according to police.

In a statement released Friday by the Maine Drug Enforcement Agency, police indicated they arrested Cary Harper, 37, of Tremont and Massachusetts on March 22. The arrest came at the end of an investigation that began in late 2011, police indicated. Harper is accused of selling oxycodone to informants who were acting under the control and direction of MDEA officers.

MDEA also indicated, without specifying a date, that it arrested Brennan Spofford, 32, of Tremont on a charge of illegal trafficking in heroin. Spofford also is accused of selling heroin to informants who were acting under the control and direction of MDEA agents.

It was not clear from the statement where Harper and Spofford were arrested or how much of the drugs each man is accused of selling.

Harper and Spofford each are facing class B offenses, which are punishable by fines of up to $20,000 and up to 10 years in prison. They are scheduled to be arraigned May 25 in Hancock County Superior Court in Ellsworth, police indicated.
