AUBURN — Three people are facing drug trafficking charges in Maine following their arrests for allegedly bringing a shipment of cocaine to Maine from Connecticut.
Maine Drug Enforcement Agency agents and Auburn police arrested 27-year-old Amanda Rodriguez of Auburn, Margoliz Velázquez of Hartford, Conn., and 39-year-old Markevin Faucette of Lewiston shortly after midnight Wednesday after stopping their vehicle as it was exiting the Maine Turnpike in Auburn. Police say they seized 1½ ounces of crack cocaine.
The three are being held at the Androscoggin County Jail on $75,000 bail each.
