Raid on New England home leads to drug trafficking charges for man, woman
MEXICO, Maine — A man and a woman have been arrested for the second time in less than three months on charges accusing them of selling crack cocaine.
Drug agents raided 60 Maine St., Apt. 3, at 3:30 p.m. Friday. During the raid, authorities found 9 grams of pre-packaged crack cocaine ready for distribution, Suboxone strips and $8,350 in suspected drug proceeds, police said. Some of the cash seized had been used by MDEA to purchase drugs undercover, police said.
Police arrested Jessica Pare, 40, who rents the apartment and charged her with aggravated trafficking schedule W drug, class A (cocaine base) and violation of condition of release.
Also arrested was Pare's boyfriend Randy Aron, 40, of Boston. He is charged with aggravated trafficking schedule W drug, class A (cocaine base) and violation of condition of release. Aron also was arrested on a warrant of arrest issued by the Unified Criminal Docket Court in Rumford charging revocation of bail.
The couple previously had been arrested by MDEA on March 1 on aggravated trafficking charges (crack cocaine) from their residence at 12 Angie Lane in Mexico. The two were currently out on bail on those charges, with conditions they not commit new criminal acts and to have no contact with each other.
Bail was denied and Pare and Aron were taken to the Oxford County Jail pending an arraignment Monday.
