A man from Gray who was out on bail from a domestic violence assault arrest in June was caught with illegal drugs Tuesday. 

The Cumberland District Task Force and State Police conducted a bail compliance check of Angel Velez’s apartment on Lewiston Road in Gray, but found nothing. At the agents request, Velez refused to let them search his vehicle. The authorities obtained a search warrant for the vehicle and found 120 individual bags of heroin and over $700 in suspected drug money.

Velez was arrested and charged with Aggravated Trafficking in Schedule W Drugs (Heroin), and Violation of Conditions of Release. He was transported to the Cumberland County Jail where he is being held without bail. Velez was also placed on a probation hold, as he was on probation from a prior felony drug possession conviction in 2013.
