In what was a major drug bust, agents with the Maine Drug Enforcement Agency busted a trafficking operation and seized guns, cash and more than 7 pounds of illicit fentanyl.

In a press release from Maine Department of Public Safety Spokeswoman, Shannon Moss, agents with the Cumberland and York District task forces, along with help from the Saco, Maine police department, were able to take the suspect into custody in the parking lot of a business when he allegedly arrived to deliver fentanyl to an undercover Maine DEA agent.

The investigation, which has been ongoing for the last 8 months, led Maine agents to believe the suspect was part of a large and extensive drug trafficking operation. They say the suspect is believed to have been travelling out of state to purchase large amounts of deadly fentanyl before returning to Southern Maine to distribute it to buyers.

Police say the suspect would repackage the fentanyl into various dose sizes and deliver it to buyers across York and Cumberland counties.

On May 1st, Maine DEA agents were able to arrest 24-year-old, Almuntadhar M. Mohammed of Biddeford in a business parking lot without incident. The release goes on to explain that Mohammed has been charged with unlawful trafficking in schedule W drugs, unlawful aggravated trafficking in schedule W drugs (5 counts).

Police say they also confiscated guns, ammo and cash at the scene of the arrest.

Mohammed, who already had outstanding warrants for drug trafficking, was being held at the York County Jail, but was able to post the $7500 bail and has been released.
