EXETER — Four people were arrested in Exeter Thursday after allegedly selling crack cocaine and fentanyl to undercover drug agents.
According to a statement from the Maine Drug Enforcement Agency, the arrest came after a months-long investigation into the sale of drugs from an Exeter home.
Drug agents were assisted by Penobscot County Sheriff’s Office deputies in a search of the Mills Road home and seized crack cocaine, fentanyl, a handgun, and cash. An MDEA spokesperson said two children under the age of 5 who were in the home during the search were turned over to workers from the Maine Department of Health and Human Services.
A news release estimated the seized drugs had a street value of $30,000.
The statement said Daishawn William, 23, of Van Buren Township, Michigan, Justin Lett, 23, of Ypsilanti, Michigan, Justin Warman, 34, and Anne-Marie DeJesus, 33, both of Exeter, were arrested and charged with aggravated drug trafficking.
William, Lett, and Warman were taken to Hancock County Jail and were scheduled to appear in court Friday. DeJesus was taken to Two Bridges Jail in Wiscasset, with bail set at $10,000.
