A traffic stop in Augusta has resulted in the seizure of illegal drugs, and charges against one man.

Who Was Arrested?

Alvaro 'Santos' Annover Montera Arias was arrested in Augusta. He's charged with possession and trafficking of controlled substances.

What Was Seized in the Bust?

Federal and local authorities arrested Arias after a traffic stop on Friday afternoon on Riverside Drive in Augusta, at MD's Market. The FBI has been investigating the man for months and had allegedly set up undercover buys of illegal drugs from him in May and June, including 500 grams of fentanyl. According to the Kennebec Journal, some of those alleged transactions were believed to have taken place in a gas station bathroom in Augusta.

When FBI agents noticed that Arias' cellphone was leaving Canton, Massachusetts and heading toward Maine on I-95, they contacted the Augusta Police Department and set up the traffic stop. During that stop, a Kennebec County Sheriff's Office K-9 team assisted in a search of the vehicle, which resulted in the seizure of 92 grams of powder cocaine, 474 grams of fentanyl, and 452 grams of methamphetamine.
