Based on information gathered in that arrest, along with information gathered by the Maine Drug Enforcement Agency, investigators obtained a search warrant for Bray's home.
On Wednesday afternoon, that search warrant was executed at Bray's home on GOA Way in Deer Isle. Seized in that search were approximately 23 grams of fentanyl, 6 grams of crack cocaine, over $16,000 in suspected drug proceeds, as well as 46 firearms.
