On Monday, June 9, Maine Drug Enforcement Agents from the North Central Task Force in Bangor arrested Anthony Cabal and Katrina Meucci on felony drug trafficking charges in Bangor.
For the past several weeks, the Maine Drug Enforcement Agency has been investigating drug trafficking activities of individuals operating out of an apartment located inside 95 Center Street in Bangor. As part of the investigation, agents conducted undercover purchases of Oxycodone from individuals connected to this case.
Late Monday night, Cabal and Meucci were taken into custody, shortly after they left the Center Street apartment. Cabal was charged with Class A, Aggravated Trafficking in Schedule W drugs (Oxycodone). This charge was elevated due to the fact that the drugs were being sold less than 1000 feet from John Bapst High School. Meucci was charged with Class B Trafficking in Schedule W Drugs (Oxycodone). Cabal is 20 years of age, with no known permanent address. Meucci is 22 years of age and is from Bangor. Both were transported to the Penobscot County Jail for booking. A search warrant was executed on the apartment from which the drugs were being sold, as well as on the car that the pair were in when they were arrested. Seized in connection with this case was approximately $3000 in cash and a small quantity of Oxycodone.
At the time of his arrest, there were 2 outstanding warrants for Cabal. One was a full extradition warrant issued by the New York City Police Department in February of 2014 on conspiracy charges (no other details available at this time) and the other was out of a Lewiston, Maine, charging failure to appear on non-drug related criminal offenses.
MDEA was assisted by the Bangor and Brewer Police Departments during this investigation. This investigation is continuing and more arrests are likely.
