A routine traffic stop in Lagrange netted a wide variety of illegal drugs and caused police to take a Bradford man into custody.

Why Did Police Stop the Vehicle?

Law Enforcement officials never know what they're going to find when they stop a vehicle on the road. On October 4th, Penobscot County Sheriff's Deputy Noah Tamulonis pulled over a vehicle on Bennoch Road in Lagrange after noticing the driver committing multiple traffic violations. Suspecting that there may have been more to the story than just a bad driver, he called for other deputies to assist him in the investigation.

What Drugs Were Found?

During the stop, deputies noticed evidence of criminal activity and searched the vehicle. The result of that search was the seizure of several different types of illegal drugs:

  • 2.2 gross grams of heroin/fentanyl
  • 2.2 gross grams of crack cocaine
  • 18 gross grams of methamphetamine
  • 16 Alprazolam pills, commonly known as Xanax

Who Was the Suspect?

As a result of the search and the drug seizure, 41-year-old Bryan Jazowski of Bradford was arrested. He faces multiple charges:

  • Unlawful trafficking of schedule W drugs - Class B
  • Unlawful possession of schedule W drugs X2 - Class C
  • Unlawful possession of schedule W drug - class D
  • Violation of conditional release - class C

He was transported to the Penobscot County Jail.

Anyone with information about the illegal sale of drugs in their community is urged to contact their local law enforcement agency, or the Maine Drug Enforcement office closest to them. They can also text MDEA to TIP411 (847411) or call the MDEA tip line at 1-800-452-6457.
