BANGOR – Three people are facing drug charges after police stopped a car on Interstate 95 just south of Bangor Wednesday night.
Maine Department of Public Safety spokesman Steve McCausland said Friday that the stop led to more than $130,000 worth of drugs being seized.
According to McCausland, a drug sniffing dog alerted state police and drug enforcement agents to the presence of the drugs.
He said a search turned up about 10 grams of cocaine, small amounts of heroin and meth as well as just under $2,000 cash believed to be from the sale of drugs.
Russell Raye, 34, of Cambridge was driving the vehicle.
McCausland said drug agents have been gathering evidence on Raye as part of an ongoing investigation.
He said they searched Raye’s home after the stop and found almost a pound and a half of suspected heroin, 96 grams of meth and an additional $24,000 cash as well as two guns.
Raye is charged with aggravated trafficking. His bail is set at $250,000.
Katherine Scott, 24, of Guilford and 21-year-old Matthew McKusick of Sangerville were also in the vehicle that was stopped.
They are both charged with trafficking drugs. McKusick also is charged with drug possession.
Bail for each of them has been set at $75,000.
