Two men from Florida are facing charges for allegedly bringing cocaine from their home state to Maine to sell. They were arrested after drug agents received a tip that the men were staying in a local hotel. The informant told them the men were selling cocaine out of a van at various locations around town.

The Maine Drug Enforcement Agency said in a press release that the Downeast District Task force received the tip and located the van in an Ellsworth parking lot. Agents followed the van around Ellsworth, finally making an undercover purchase of cocaine.

Once the men were arrested, a search of the van turned up 1.13 pounds of cocaine, stored in a rubber boot.The estimated street value of the drugs is $51,000. The United States Department of Homeland Security was notified when the men claimed to be from Haiti.

Mark Antoine Thervil, 44 and St. Merite Nicholas, 51, both of Fort Pierce, Florida are charged with Class A Aggravated Trafficking in Scheduled Drugs (cocaine). Police say the investigation is ongoing.

Anyone with information about this or any other drug crime is encouraged to call the MDEA field office near you, or call the MDEA Drug Tip Hotline at 800-452-6457.
