WESTBROOK — The Maine Drug Enforcement Agency, in collaboration with the Westbrook Police Department, reported the arrest of a Portland man on aggravated drug trafficking charges, following the seizure of nearly a pound of fentanyl, two handguns, and suspected drug proceeds on April 13.

Marc W. Pinsky, 31, was apprehended after Westbrook Police officers responded to a report of an impaired driver at 140 Main Street around 9 p.m. Officers found Pinsky sleeping in the back of a U-Haul truck and discovered he had outstanding warrants for failing to appear in court on felony drug trafficking charges and for violating bail.

An MDEA agent assisted in the investigation, which led to the seizure of 309 grams of fentanyl, 140 grams of cocaine, 21 grams of methamphetamine, two handguns, and $2,000 in suspected drug proceeds, estimated to be worth $30,000.

Pinsky, currently held without bail at the Cumberland County jail, faces new drug trafficking charges.

Bail for each of his outstanding warrants is set at $1,000 cash.

The MDEA reaffirmed its commitment to working with law enforcement partners to combat drug trafficking in Maine.
