Drug agents seized more than fifteen thousand lethal doses of fentanyl, and arrested seven people in Waterville last week.

The investigation started with the search of a Gray Street apartment, where the large amount of fentanyl was found. They were then led to apartments on Gray Avenue and Summer Street, and arrested a total of seven people.

WABI-TV reports two men from Massachusetts were taken into custody, as well as 36-year-old Gloria Pressey, 28-year-old Martin Fernald, 32-year-old Angela Hanson, 41-year-old Christopher Violette, and 27-year-old Joshua Bilodeau of Waterville. All seven were charged with trafficking in drugs.
