Two People Arrested for Aggravated Drug Trafficking
A joint investigation with the MDEA’s Down East Task Force, the Maine Warden Service, and the Maine Marine Patrol began in the early part of November. A case against Dexter Bray involving night hunting led officials to find him in possession of three firearms, approximately 10 grams of fentanyl and over $3000 in cash.
Fentanyl, Cocaine and Firearms Seized
Based on that information and a further investigation, authorities obtained a search warrant for Bray’s home on GOA Way in Deer Isle on November 30, 2022. Approximately 23 grams of fentanyl, 6 grams of crack cocaine, over $16,000 in suspected drug proceeds, along with 46 firearms was seized from the residence.

Dexter Bray was arrested along with his girlfriend, Heather Davis - both from Deer Isle.
- Bray was arrested for 2 counts of Class A Aggravated Trafficking in Schedule W (Fentanyl).
- Davis was arrested for Class A Aggravated Trafficking in Schedule W (Fentanyl) and Violation of Conditions of Release (Currently on bail for unlawful possession of fentanyl).
Several agencies and departments assisted the Maine Drug Enforcement Agency in the investigation including the Maine Warden Service, the Maine Marine Patrol, the Hancock County Sheriff’s Office and the US Food and Drug Administration (USFDA).
The MDEA posted a reminder saying, “all suspects are presumed innocent until proven guilty in a court of law.”
