As part of an ongoing investigation into the distribution of fentanyl in Hancock and Penobscot Counties, a man from the Dominican Republic and a woman from Greenbush, Maine was arrested last night, March 7, in Greenbush. These arrests occurred following the execution of a search warrant on a home located on the Spring Bridge Road in Greenbush.
From the MDEA:
For over a year, along-side federal, state, county and local partners, the Maine Drug Enforcement Agency has been investigating an out of state drug trafficking organization responsible for the distribution of significant amounts of fentanyl throughout Hancock, Somerset, Piscataquis and Penobscot Counties. During this time, the Maine Drug Enforcement Agency has arrested and charged over a dozen people believed to be connected to the group, seized several pounds of the deadly drug fentanyl and tens of thousands of dollars in illegal drug proceeds.
In recent weeks, MDEA investigators learned that members of this group were now operating out of home in rural Greenbush, Maine. As part of the ensuing investigation, a number of undercover purchases of fentanyl were made from inside the Greenbush home. Last night MDEA investigators, assisted by the Maine State Police Tactical Team, the Penobscot County Sheriff’s Office, the US Drug Enforcement Administration and Homeland Security Investigations (HSI), executed a search warrant on the Greenbush home.
Following the search, Cleudy Confesor Carmona Mejia, 34, of the Dominican Republic and Kelcie Curtis, 26, from Greenbush, were arrested. Bail was set by a bail commissioner at $35,000
Seized was approximately 50 grams of fentanyl, with an estimated street value of $7,500. Some of the fentanyl seized was recovered from the home’s septic tank. Also seized was approximately $30,000 in cash, believed to be the proceeds of drugs sales obtained over the last couple of weeks from the home.
