Arrested  are: Cameron Soto (34) for, Class A, Aggravated Trafficking in Schedule W Drugs (Heroin/Fentanyl) and Trevor Teves (18) for, Class C, Possession of a Firearm by a Prohibited Person.

For the past month, agents assigned to MDEA’s Mid-Coast District Task Force, along with deputies from the Knox County Sheriff’s Office, and Rockland Police have been investigating Soto in connection with the distribution of  heroin/fentanyl and cocaine in Knox County. Soto earlier this year was released from the Maine State Prison after serving a sentence for a 2013 conviction for Aggravated Trafficking in Oxycodone.

On Wednesday afternoon Waldoboro Police and drug agents located Soto and Teves in a vehicle parked in a parking lot at the Waldoboro/Warren Town line as they were preparing to travel to Massachusetts.  Agents arrested Soto and seized about six grams of heroin/fentanyl, scales and $1,800 in suspected drug proceeds. Teves was arrested after a loaded 9mm handgun was located in his pocket. Teves is a convicted felon prohibited from possessing guns.

Both men were taken to the Knox County Jail where bail was set for Soto at $25,000 cash and $1,000 cash for Teves.
