Two Arrested in Separate Bangor Drug Busts
A Bangor woman and a Bangor man face drug charges after two separate incidents on Friday.

As the result of the investigation, over 190 Oxycodone tablets were seized and Martinez was arrested and taken to the Penobscot County Jail. The estimated street value on the drug is approximately $6,000.
She is being held in Penobscot County with a $50,000 dollar cash bail.
In the second case, Brian Thomas, 37, of Bangor faces charges of aggravated drug trafficking, refusing to submit to arrest and violation of bail conditions.
The arrest came while police were investigating a report of disorderly conduct near 160 Ohio Street. During the investigation, police met Thomas, who is out on bail and subject to a police search. Police say Thomas fled the area.
