The search warrant was the result of an ongoing state and federal investigation into out-of-state drug traffickers who come to Maine to sell illegal drugs.

As a result of the search warrant, agents seized 150 grams of crack cocaine and 50 grams of heroin, with a combined approximate street value of $32,000. Police also seized about $2,500 in suspected drug proceeds.

Wright, also known by his street name “Tanner,” Francis, also known by the street name “Doo,” and Gosselin were all arrested without incident inside the Horton Street apartment.

Several other people were in the apartment at the time, including the person renting the apartment. All may face charges in the future as the investigation continues, according to the MDEA.
