SANFORD, Maine — A Lebanon man was charged with trafficking heroin after a traffic stop Friday night in Sanford turned up more than 120 grams of the drug.
Police received calls shortly after 8 p.m. Friday about a car driven along Lebanon Street that reportedly was “all over the road,” according to Cpl. Matthew Gagne of the Sanford Police Department.
