JAY — A local woman and a New York man are accused of selling heroin and crack cocaine from her apartment on Main Street, according to police.

Angie  Braley, 37, of Jay and Darnell Smith, 20, of Bronx, New York, were arrested early Monday morning after police executed a search warrant at apartment 1 at 446 Main St. Drug agents found 121.2 grams of what they suspect is heroin and 85.2 grams of what they suspect is crack cocaine, according to a drug agent’s affidavit filed with a Farmington court. 

The street value of the drugs is $45,000.

Agents also seized other items related to drug trafficking, including a digital scale, according to the affidavit.

Jay police and the Maine Drug Enforcement Agency received information Sunday that drugs were being sold out of the apartment, and executed a search warrant early Monday morning following a “thorough investigation,” according to a news release from the Maine Department of Public Safety.

Braley and Smith were each charged with aggravated trafficking in heroin and aggravated trafficking of crack cocaine.


Braley was also arrested on a misdemeanor charge of violation of conditions of release. 

Braley was initially being held Monday at the Franklin County Detention Center in Farmington on $20,000 cash bail. It was lowered to $10,000 cash after she appeared before a judge.

Smith was initially held on $100,000 cash, but bail was reduced to $10,000 cash following an appearance before a judge. 

Conditions of release for both suspects include no contact with each other and no possession or use of illegal drugs and alcohol. 

Assisting drug agents were officers from Farmington and Wilton police departments, and deputies from the Franklin County Sheriff’s Office.

A conviction on each drug charge carries a penalty of up to 30 years in prison and a fine of up to $50,000. A conviction on a bail violation is punishable by up to 364 days in jail and a fine of up to $2,000.
