Fugitive Arrested at US-Mexico Border in Maine Meth Bust
Maine Drug Enforcement Agency says two people have been charged with selling methamphetamine, one from Stockton Springs and the other from the country of Mexico.
For the past two months, agents from the MDEA Mid-Coast District Task Force, Waldo County Sheriff’s Office and the U.S. Postal Inspectors conducted an investigation into the distribution of methamphetamine in Waldo County by Tiffany Eastman 27-years-old from Stockton Springs who is charged with Unlawful Trafficking in methamphetamine.
Police said, she was arrested by Waldo County Sheriffs’ Deputies August 21 at the Rocky Ridge Motel in Stockton Springs. Deputies were investigating a robbery complaint at the motel where Eastman was living. Seized at the time was approximately 66 grams of methamphetamine packaged for resale.
The investigation revealed that Dustin Campbell 38-years-old from Tijuana, Mexico -charged with Unlawful Trafficking and Illegal Importation of methamphetamine - had mailed Eastman approximately 88 grams of methamphetamine from San Diego, California, said police.
Eastman had sent a partial payment to Campbell for the meth with the agreement to send the remaining money owed once the drugs has been sold in Maine. The street value of the meth was $18,000.
Agents secured an arrest warrant for Campbell who is a U.S. citizen living in Tijuana, Mexico. Campbell was arrested on October 28 at the US-Mexico border crossing as he attempted to enter the U.S. from Mexico. Campbell is being held at the San Diego Central Jail in California as a fugitive from justice related to the Maine charges and he is fighting extradition to Maine.
