Two Arrested In Lubec Drug Bust
Two people have been charged with trafficking in drugs following the execution of a search warrant in Lubec.
The arrests were the result of a joint investigation between the Washington County Sheriff's Office and the Maine Drug Enforcement Agency. Officials arrived at a residence located at 50 Dixie Road in Lubec on the evening of October 12th. The warrant was the result of a several month investigation involving the sale of heroin and crack cocaine by individuals living at the home.
When officials from the MDEA's Downeast Task Force, Washington County Deputies, Maine State Troopers, and Pleasant Point Police Officers entered the home they found eight people inside. A woman, later identified as Jennifer Wallace, fled out the back door and was immediately apprehended with a bag of drugs. As a result of the warrant, investigators seized approximately 50 grams of heroin, 40 grams of powdered cocaine, 8 grams of crack cocaine, and $4,750 in suspected drug proceeds. Street value of the drugs seized is approximately $15,000.

- Sharley Fitzsimmons, age 51 of Lubec. He's charged with Class A Aggravated Trafficking in Schedule W Drugs (Heroin/Cocaine). Due to his declining health, Fitzsimmons was charged by way of summons and has not been arrested at this time.
- Jennifer Wallace, age 35 of Lubec. She's charged with Class A Aggravated Trafficking in Schedule W Drugs (heroin/cocaine). Wallace was taken to the Washington County Jail where bail was set at $1,000 cash.
