Maine Man Arrested for Aggravated Drug Trafficking in Crack Cocaine [PHOTOS]
The Maine Drug Enforcement Agency says a Cornish man has been charged with distributing crack cocaine in York County.
Daniel Smith, 27-years-old, from Cornish was arrested for Aggravated Trafficking in Crack Cocaine.
For the past six months, agents assigned to MDEA’s York District Task Force have been investigating the sale of crack, heroin and fentanyl in the county by Smith. Friday evening, drugs agents and York County Sheriff’s deputies stopped Smith’s vehicle in Cornish. Smith was wanted for failing to appear in court, unrelated to the MDEA investigation.
During the arrest of Smith agents found him in possession of approximately 17 grams of crack cocaine and 2.8 grams of Heroin. Smith’s residence was later searched at 124 Maple Street in Cornish and agents seized another 128 grams of crack, 2.5 grams of heroin, a semi-automatic handgun and $2000 in suspected drug proceeds. Agents also seized Smith’s 2008 Cadillac SUV. The estimated street value of the crack and heroin is $15,500, said authorities.
Smith was transported to the York County Jail where bail was set at $25,000 cash. The charge is aggravated due to the firearm. Also assisting the investigation was a State Police canine. The investigation is continuing and others associated with Smith and his drug distributions have been identified. Additional arrests are expected.
