An investigation that spanned two months netted five arrests this week. Two of the suspects are brother and sister, while another is their uncle.

Public Safety spokesman Steve McCausland said in a press release that the arrests were the result of an investigation by the Maine Drug Enforcement Agency’s York District Task Force and Detectives from the Sanford Police Department. The investigation focused on the illegal distribution of heroin throughout greater Sanford.

Undercover agents were able to purchase heroin from Derek Gerrish, Cynthia Powers, and Donald Nordmann at their residence, 7 North Street in Sanford. Seized in a search of the home were approximately 19 grams of heroin, scales, packing materials, and drug ledgers. The street value of the seized heroin is about $4,000.

The following people are facing charges:

Derek Gerrish, age 25 of Sanford – arrest warrants charging 2 counts of Unlawful Trafficking in Heroin – bail set at $20,000 cash.

  • Cynthia Powers, age 49 of Sanford – arrest warrants charging 2 counts of Unlawful Trafficking in Heroin – bail set at $20,000 cash
  • Donald Nordmann, age 48 of Sanford – arrest warrants charging 1 count of Unlawful Trafficking in Heroin – bail set at $20,000 cash
  • Ericka Gerrish, age 26 of Sanford – Unlawful Possession of Heroin – bail set at $5,000 cash
  • Michael Gerrish, age 46 of Sanford – Unlawful Possession of Heroin – bail set at $5,000 cash.
  • Michael Gerrish is the uncle to Erika and Derek, who are brother and sister. All five live at the North Street residence. The investigation is continuing and more arrests are expected.

If you have information concerning drug trafficking in your community, you’re urged to contact your local law enforcement agency, or the closest MDEA task force office. You can also call MDEA and leave a message on the tip-line at 1-800-452-6457.
