A man and woman were arrested with drugs in their car after allegedly trying to use counterfeit money to bail someone out of jail.

It was a bad day all the way around for Angela Quirion, 39, of Bangor and Adam Jalbert, 33, of Caribou. Thursday morning, the pair went to the Androscoggin County Jail to try and bail someone out. Unfortunately for them, they were using counterfeit currency, something jail officials caught on to pretty quickly. They notified Auburn Police.

At around 11:30 that morning, Auburn officers located Quirion and Jalbert waiting in a vehicle outside the jail. Since both people had active bail conditions from previous drug arrests, the officers decided to search their vehicle, with help from a Lewiston Police Department K9. Seized in that search were 112.3 grams of cocaine base, 165.3 grams of cocaine, 299.5 grams of fentanyl, and 492.3 grams of methamphetamines. In addition, officers found a SCCY 9mm pistol.
