ELLSWORTH-A man who served time in prison for heroin charges is facing new charges following his arrest in Ellsworth.
Maine Drug Agents say they’ve been investigating the sale of heroin in coastal Hancock County.
The trail led them to 49 year old David Faulkingham of Trenton.
Officials say they learned he was returning from a trip out of state Monday to purchase more of the drug.
They stopped his vehicle in Ellsworth and say they found more than $10 thousand dollars worth of heroin inside.
Faulkingham is now charged with aggravated trafficking in heroin and aggravated importation of the drug.
The charges were raised to the more serious charge of aggravated because of faulkingham’s previous drug conviction.
