AUBURN (WGME) – Police said they seized a large quantity of drugs from a home near a school after busting a “delivery” business in Auburn.
Auburn Police Chief Jason Moen said undercover officers placed an order through the online service advertised as B and B Delivery. Shortly after that, 43-year-old Bruce Fournier, who was running the business out of his home, was arrested in a traffic stop.
Fournier lives in a multi-unit building off Minot Avenue, which is 50 feet from the entry of Snake Trail, which leads to Edward Little High School.
Officers said a search of Fournier’s home turned up more than 20 pounds of marijuana, pills, psychedelic mushrooms and more than $2,500 in suspected drug proceeds, in addition to hundreds of containers with hash oil and manufacturing equipment.
Police said they had concerns about the nature of Fournier’s delivery business.
“I’m not sure if he was using any type of screening process. He could have been delivering to anybody and not verifying IDs or anything like that. That’s a huge concern for us, especially where the retail end of it hasn’t been fully thought out or regulated yet,” Moen said. “We’re afraid that we’re gonna start seeing more of these pop up.”
Fournier is being held without bail at Androscoggin County Jail.
