Investigators Say Second Man Arrested After Getting Off Bus In Bangor Looking to Sell Crack to Pay His Friend’s Bail
A second Brooklyn, New York man has been arrested on cocaine charges after getting off a bus in Bangor, Maine. Maine Drug Enforcement officials say he is associated with a man arrested earlier in the week.
Tylee Felder, 21, from Brooklyn was arrested Monday after investigators determined he was bringing crack cocaine from New York to Bangor by bus for re-sale in greater Bangor.
Agents assigned to MDEA’s North Central Office in Bangor says they determined an associate of Felder’s was likely on his way to Bangor, also by bus, with more crack cocaine.
Investigators says the new shipment intended to help raise funds for Felder’s $25,000 bail.
On Wednesday evening, agents observed a man matching the description of the suspect they were looking for exit the bus at Union Street and get into the front seat of a pick-up truck.
MDEA agents, assisted by Bangor Police, stopped the truck a short distance away..
Arrested was 19-year-old Temaur “Butta” Murdaugh of Brooklyn.
Agents seized about an ounce of crack cocaine, with a street value of $3,000.
Murdaugh was transported to the Penobscot County Jail where he was charged with Class B Trafficking in Schedule W Drugs .
His bail has been set at $50,000.
Felder is also still being held in lieu of his bail from Monday’s arrest.
