Heroin and Crack Seized in Drug Bust
MDEA agents and Bangor Police officers seized over two-hundred grams of heroin and one-hundred-seventy grams of cocaine base (crack) on Monday.
A search warrant was served Monday morning at the home of Edward Wallace on Market Street in Bangor. The retail street value of the seized drugs was estimated at a conservative $68,000. More than $8000 in drug sale proceeds was also seized.
Wallace was arrested and charged with trafficking in heroin and cocaine. The 61-year old Wallace was home alone at the time and he offered no resistance.
The arrest was part of a larger, long term investigation into the sale of drugs imported from outside Maine for retail sale in Penobscot County.
Part of the investigation involved agents purchasing drugs from more than one suspect at the Market Street residence leading up to Monday’s action.
Also arrested elsewhere in Bangor on Monday was Daniel Reed, 48, of Bangor. He is charged with trafficking in heroin and cocaine, and violation of conditions of release. He was on bail for possession of drugs.
Finally, 40-year-old Tony Brown, of New Haven, CT and Bangor, was arrested and charged with aggravated trafficking in heroin and cocaine. Brown also faces a charge of violating conditions of release as he was already out on bail following a March 2018 drug trafficking arrest in Bangor.
All three were taken to the Penobscot County Jail.
