A Woman and Man Arrested in Biddeford for Trafficking in Heroin & Crack
MDEA’s York District Task Force arrested Thursday a Massachusetts man and a Biddeford woman for Aggravated Trafficking in Heroin and Crack.
Marquis T. Nevins (36) of Attleboro, Massachusetts for Class A, Aggravated Trafficking in Schedule W Drugs (Heroin & Cocaine Base)
Kelly A. Anderson (49) of Biddeford, Maine for Class A, Aggravated Trafficking in Schedule W Drugs (Heroin & Cocaine Base)
For the past six months drug agents have investigating reports of drug dealing from Anderson’s apartment at 28 Center Street. The investigation revealed Anderson would drive the out of state distributors to Lowell, Massachusetts to purchase heroin and crack cocaine and then return to Maine where the drugs were repackaged and sold from her apartment.
Thursday night about 10 pm agents and State Police conducted a traffic stop of Anderson’s vehicle on the Maine Turnpike in York. The vehicle was observed by agents returning to Maine from Massachusetts. During the traffic stop, a State Police drug certified dog alerted to the presence of drugs in the vehicle.
Nevins, who was a passenger in the vehicle, was found in possession of approximately 21 grams (210 doses) of heroin and 60 grams (120 doses) of crack cocaine. The approximate street value of the drugs is $10,000. In addition $3,400 of suspected drug proceeds was also seized from Nevins and Anderson. Nevins and Anderson were transported to the York County Jail where bail was set at $10,000 cash each.
