Oxycodone arrest

A New York man is accused of selling oxycontin here in Maine.
 
32 year old Jason Jones was arrested in Searsport last night and is now charged with drug trafficking. Maine drug agents say they've been investigating the illegal distribution of prescription drugs for the past several months. The trail led them to Jones who has been identified as the source of supply of oxycodone in the midcoast area.
Thousands of pills have been sold from Bangor, along the coast and even into the Augusta area. Officials say Jones was arrested last night when he agreed to drive from Bangor to Searsport to deliver 200 pills to a buyer at a convenience store. He didn't realize he was selling to an undercover agent.

USPS Closes Maine Post Offices

Storm Forces Cancellation of Mail Delivery Tuesday,  Jan. 27 Throughout Most of Maine

PORTLAND, ME – Postal officials report that most post offices in Maine will be closed on Tuesday due to dangerous weather conditions forecast throughout the region. There will be no mail delivery or pick-up as a result except those with 047 ZIP Codes, which may be curtailed at any time to ensure the safety of employees and customers. Normal post office hours of operation are expected to resume on Wednesday, Jan. 28.

The Postal Service is also asking customers to assist their letter carriers after the storm by clearing snow around on their mailboxes and to provide salt and/or sand to any areas that may be slippery from ice.
Postal managers ask that customers to:

  *   Clear enough snow from curbside boxes to allow mail trucks to approach the box, deliver the mail, and to drive away from the box without danger or the need for backing;
  *   Clear walkways of snow and ice and allow enough traction to avoid slips, trips or falls;
  *   Keep steps clear of ice and snow and in good repair so as not to cause injury to the letter carriers or others who visit the customer’s home; and
  *   Make sure overhangs are clear and free of snow and ice to avoid injury.
Whether mail arrives on foot or by postal vehicle, the letter carrier needs access to the mailbox to deposit your mail. Please make sure the mailbox itself is visible and free of snow and ice, and make sure it is safely accessible for your letter carrier.

Letter carriers are instructed to hold mail to addresses where ice and snow are not cleared but they often risk injury trying to provide the best service they can to the customers they serve. Please show them your appreciation by ensuring they are safe when delivering your mail.

The Postal Service receives no tax dollars for operating expenses and relies on the sale of postage, products and services to fund its operations.
