$200,000 of Fentanyl, Cocaine, Crack & Meth Found in Maine Car w/ Children Inside
A Major drug bust happened in Maine over the weekend as the result of a routine traffic stop.
WMTW News 8 is reporting that a Penobscot Sheriff's Deputy pulled a vehicle over this past weekend and was performing a regular traffic stop. During that traffic stop, something led the deputy to believe the vehicle, which had a man, woman and two young children inside, needed to be searched.
A Sheriff K9 unit was brought in to aid in the search. During the search of the vehicle the police dog alerted to the presence of drugs inside the vehicle. A more thorough search done by officers revealed what they suspected was there.
Penobscot County Sheriff's deputies retrieved 1,300 grams of what is believed to be fentanyl in addition to meth, crack and cocaine.
Following the discovery of the drugs, both Monica Clark of Bangor and Roger Grego of Etna, 37 and 34 respectively, were taken into police custody on charges of aggravated drug trafficking. The children were taken into the care of the Maine Department of Health and Human Services.
