During the investigation, agents conducted controlled purchases of fentanyl and crack cocaine from 21-year-old Jade Willette of Bangor.

From Maine State Police:

On Tuesday evening MDEA Agents, assisted by the Bangor Police Department’s Special Response Team, executed a search warrant at the Larkin Street residence. As a result of the search warrant, approximately 40 grams of cocaine base (crack), approximately 40 grams of suspected fentanyl, 3 firearms and over $1300 dollars in suspected drug proceeds were seized. The estimated street value of the drugs seized is $10,000 dollars. Willette was taken to the Penobscot County Jail and charged with three (3) Counts of Class A Aggravated Trafficking of Scheduled W Drugs. The charges were aggravated due to the residence’s proximity (within 1000 ft) of the Vine Street School. More arrests are expected. Booking photos are available through the Penobscot County Jail. Assisting in the arrests and search warrant were officers from the Bangor Police Department, agents with USDEA and the Bureau of Indian Affairs.
