Two Massachusetts Men Arrested In Waldoboro Heroin Bust
Two men from Massachusetts are facing charges in connection with the seizure of heroin in Waldoboro.
Public Safety spokesman Steve McCausland says 34-year-old Cameron Soto is charged with Aggravated Trafficking in Schedule W Drugs, while 18-year-old Trevor Teves is charged with Possession of a Firearm by a Prohibited Person. Both men are from Bedford, Massachusetts.
The arrests were the result of a month-long investigation by the Maine Drug Enforcement Agency's Mid-Coast District Task Force, the Knox County Sheriff's Office, and Rockland Police. Soto was released earlier this year from the Maine State Prison after serving a sentence for trafficking in Oxycodone. He's been under investigation since his release, suspected of selling heroin/fentanyl and cocaine in Knox County.
On Wednesday afternoon, the two men were arrested as they were sitting in a parked car on the Waldoboro/Warren Town line, preparing to travel to Massachusetts. About six grams of heroin/fentanyl were seized from Soto, along with $1,800 in suspected drug proceeds. Teves was charged after police found a loaded 9mm handgun in his pocket. He's a convicted felon and so prohibited from possessing guns.
Both men were taken to the Knox County Jail, where bail was set for Soto at $25,000 cash and $1,000 cash for Teves.
