The Maine Drug Enforcement Agency has arrested four people in Biddeford and charged them with selling crack cocaine. The two men and two women were arrested in the parking lot of a shopping center Thursday and a quantity of cocaine and money were seized, along with the car they were in.
Charged with aggravated trafficking of crack cocaine, a class A felony, are – Darlene Court , 44, of Saco, Kimberly Pierce, 29, of Waterboro, Earl Guerro, 24, of Boston, Mass. and Aaron Brown, 28, of Biddeford.
As the result of an ongoing drug investigation, agents learned that the four were about to make a sale of cocaine in the parking lot of the Five Points Shopping Plaza in Biddeford. MDEA agents and Biddeford Police set up surveillance in the parking lot and took the four into custody as the transaction was taking place.
Agents seized 11.8 grams of crack cocaine with an estimated street value of $1000. Also seized was $1980 in cash and a 2010 Toyota Corolla. The charges are heightened to the aggravated status because the sale was taking place within 1000 feet of a designated safe zone (May Field).
All four were being held at the York County Jail.
