Maine drug agents arrested two Florida men in Lincoln on Friday for selling crystal methamphetamine, police said.

Two Florida men were arrested Friday for selling crystal methamphetamine and heroin out of a Lincoln motel, authorities said.

The Maine Drug Enforcement Agency arrested Jared Fogg, 27, and Rogelio Rios, 29, on Friday, after agents began investigating reports that the two men were dealing drugs from the Briarwood Motor Inn early last week, according to Cmdr. Darrell Crandall of the Maine Drug Enforcement Agency. The Lincoln Police Department and the Penobscot County Sheriff’s Office assisted in the arrests.

After keeping an eye on the pair for several days, agents searched the motel room and Rios’ car and found 125 grams of crystal meth, 42 grams of heroin and $19,000 in suspected drug money, Crandall said. Officers also seized two 9 mm handguns, one of which is believed to be stolen, he said.

Both men face multiple counts for aggravated drug trafficking and were booked at the Penobscot County Jail in Bangor. Their bail has been set at $75,000, Crandall said.
