1 min read

AUBURN — Police from the Auburn Police Department’s Proactive Community Enforcement (PACE) Unit apprehended two individuals on March 28, following a search that yielded a significant quantity of illicit drugs and related paraphernalia.

The operation targeted a known drug trafficking location at an apartment on 21 Spring Street.

Around 8:30 p.m., officers conducted the search as part of an ongoing investigation.

The tenant, 28-year-old Sabrina Harps, was on a bail contract from a prior arrest that required her to permit searches for drugs and alcohol.

Daniel Williams, 33, Harps’ boyfriend, was also present during the raid.

The search led to the discovery of over 200 grams of fentanyl, 123 oxycodone 30-milligram pills, 22 Suboxone strips, ammunition, and magazines for a handgun.

Digital scales and two food blenders with traces of fentanyl, which are believed to be used in drug adulteration to increase profits, were also seized.

The drugs have an estimated street value of approximately $24,000.

Harps, previously convicted in federal court in 2015 for illegal use of credit cards, was charged with violation of conditions of release and is being held without bail.

Williams, with a criminal history including a 2009 robbery conviction in New York, a 2015 aggravated trafficking scheduled drugs conviction in Maine, a 2019 domestic violence assault, and a 2023 felony domestic violence assault with priors, is on probation for the last charge.

Due to their criminal records, both Harps and Williams are prohibited under federal law from possessing firearms or ammunition.

They were arrested and charged with two counts each of aggravated trafficking scheduled drugs, class A, and unlawful possession of scheduled drugs, class C.

Williams is held on $25,000 cash bail for the new charges, but a probation violation means he is being held without bail for probation.
