Maine Man Accused Of Trafficking In Fentanyl
A Wilton man was arrested as he got off the train in Brunswick, allegedly carrying a large amount of Fentanyl.
Public Safety spokesman Steve McCausland says 32-year-old James Young-Dumont was apprehended at around 4:30 Tuesday afternoon as he got off the train in Brunswick. He ran from authorities as he arrived from Haverhill, Massachusetts, but was quickly apprehended. When authorities caught up to him, he allegedly had 1200 doses of Fentanyl with him, and was charged with Aggravated Trafficking in Fentanyl, an outstanding warrant for failure to appear in court, and violation of bail conditions. The warrant referred to a court appearance in Ellsworth for a Possession of Drugs charge.
Young-Dumont was also on probation in Massachusetts for a previous drug charge and had an outstanding warrant in that state for Probation Violation. MDEA agents received information that he often traveled to Haverhill on the train to buy Heroin/Fentanyl in bulk and then return to Maine where he would repackage the drugs for sale. The street value of the drugs seized in Brunswick is $20,000.
He was taken to the Cumberland County Jail where no bail will be set due to his bail violation. Maine Drug Enforcement agents were assisted by Railroad police.
