OAKLAND, Maine — A New York City man and an Oakland woman were arrested Thursday in a heroin bust, according to Maine Drug Enforcement Agency officials.

An investigation into trafficking by Kendell Cagle, 27, and Shayna Shaw-Jenney, 25, has been going on for roughly two months, MDEA Cmdr. Peter Arno said.

Both are facing a charge of aggravated trafficking in heroin, according to Arno.

MDEA and Oakland police had been collaborating on an investigation involving individuals from New York engaged in heroin distribution from a Hill Street apartment, and drug agents were able to conduct numerous undercover purchases, Arno said.

On Thursday, MDEA agents, Oakland police, state police and Kennebec County sheriff’s deputies executed a search warrant at the apartment, arrested Cagle and Shaw-Jenney and reportedly seized nearly 100 grams of heroin and $1,800 in suspected drug proceedings.

Bail for Cagle, also known as “Gudda,” was set at $25,000 cash. Shaw-Jenney’s bail was set at $5,000.

More arrests are anticipated.
