BANGOR, Maine — Investigators with the Maine Drug Enforcement Agency and Bangor Police Department raided a Larkin Street residence Thursday night and arrested a New York City man and a local woman they found with two types of diverted prescription drugs, according to an MDEA press release.
Douglas Lewis, 31, of New York City and Megyn Voisine, 27, of Bangor were both charged with felony trafficking in scheduled drugs, a Class B crime. Voisine also was charged with violating conditions of her release, stemming from earlier drug charges for which she was currently out on bail, the press release states.
The drug raid took place at 48 Larkin St.
“During the search, agents seized oxycodone, Suboxone and over $6,000 in suspected drug proceeds, as well as other evidence of drug trafficking,” MDEA Commander Peter Arno said in the statement.
Over the past several weeks, the MDEA’s North Central Task Force in Bangor, with the assistance of the Bangor Police Department, has been investigating the illicit sale of crack cocaine and oxycodone from the Larkin Street residence.
“As part of this investigation, agents were able to conduct undercover purchases of crack cocaine and oxycodone from individuals inside this single-family home,” Arno said.
Lewis and Voisine were taken to Penobscot County Jail and are scheduled to make their first court appearance on the new charges Friday afternoon.
“This investigation is continuing and more arrests are possible,” Arno said.
Voisine was charged a year ago in Lincoln with two counts of unlawful possession of scheduled drugs, according to Bangor Daily News archives.
Those with information about this investigation or any illegal sale of drugs in this state can contact the nearest MDEA office or call the MDEA tip-line at 800-452-6457.
If convicted of the Class C felony, Lewis and Voisine face a penalty of up to five years in prison and a fine of up to $5,000.
