1 min read

BANGOR — Three individuals were taken into custody this afternoon after the Maine Drug Enforcement Agency (MDEA) conducted a raid on an apartment at 54 Charles Street, resulting from an extensive undercover operation targeting fentanyl trafficking.

The MDEA’s North Central Task Force, with support from the Bangor Police Department and the U.S. Drug Enforcement Administration, executed the search warrant on June 6.

The operation culminated in the arrest of Shameek Harris, 31, from New York City, Wenona Lola, 52, and Roger Brown, 43, both from Bangor.

They have been charged with Class A, Aggravated Drug Trafficking offenses and are being held without bail.

The charges were amplified due to the substantial quantity of drugs found and the presence of firearms in the apartment.

Seized items included over 200 grams of cocaine base, more than 140 grams of fentanyl, $11,287 in suspected drug proceeds, and a loaded .40 caliber handgun.

The drugs have an estimated street value of $45,000.

The trio is scheduled for an initial court appearance on June 7 in Bangor, where bail will likely be set.

While they await their hearing, all suspects are considered innocent until proven guilty.

Booking photos can be accessed on the Penobscot County Jail’s online website.

The MDEA reaffirmed its commitment to dismantling drug trafficking operations in Maine, particularly those involving dangerous substances like fentanyl and methamphetamine.

Ongoing investigations suggest further arrests may be forthcoming.
