Conn. Man Arrested in Maine Heroin Trafficking Investigation

A Connecticut man and three Maine residents face drug trafficking charges after being arrested in a Maine Drug Enforcement Agency investigation.

The MDEA says the arrests are part of an ongoing investigation into the distribution of heroin in Kennebec County, Maine.

Authorities say 28-year-old Michelle St. Laurent, of Winthrop, Maine, is charged with aggravated heroin trafficking due to the amount of heroin seized, which was 76 grams. She is being held without bail.

Twenty-year-old Tyrone Lindsay, of Waterbury, is also charged with aggravated drug trafficking. Bail was set at $20,000.

Police say 30-year-old Daniel Ackerly and 59-year-old Frederick Werner, both of Winthrop, Maine are charged with heroin trafficking. They were arrested Thursday. St. Laurent and Lindsay were arrested Friday, after a search of St. Laurent's home turned up the heroin and $2,400 police say they suspect was from heroin sales.

It was not immediately known if they have lawyers. They were all scheduled a court date of September 22.

The MDEA says the investigation is ongoing and more arrests are possible.
