Couple Arrested for Oxycodone Distribution
The Maine Drug Enforcement Agency has arrested a New York man and a Veazie woman at a Bangor motel following a several month investigation into the distribution of significant amounts of Oxycodone from their room.
In addition to Oxycodone pills, MDEA agents seized $40,000 in cash which they believe resulted from this week’s drug sales. Agents say a substantial number of people were seen coming and going from the couple’s room during the week.
MDEA investigators received information that drugs were being sold from a room at the Comfort Inn on Bangor Mall Blvd.. The investigation included the undercover purchase of Oxycodone from the room. Seized from the motel room Thursday were approximately 260 Oxycodone 30 mg. pills, with a street value of $8000. In addition, agents located nearly $40,000 in suspected cash proceeds.
Arrested in the room were 25-year old Steve Abreau, whose street name is “Swift”, of the Bronx, New York, and Meredith Perrone, 32, from Veazie. Both were charged with Class “B” Trafficking in Schedule W Drugs (Oxycodone) and transported to the Penobscot County Jail. Bail on Abreau was set at $70,000 cash. Perrone’s bail was set at $25,000 cash. Both were expected to make initial appearances Friday in Bangor Unified Court.
MDEA received assistance in this investigation from Bangor Police and the US Drug Enforcement Administration. The investigation is continuing and more arrests are likely in what drugs agents say is the latest example of out of state drug dealers relocating to Maine.
