SKOWHEGAN — Police have arrested another man in connection with heroin trafficking out of a home on North School Street.
Kyle Green, 22, of Skowhegan, was charged with unlawful trafficking in scheduled drugs on Thursday. His arrest came a day after two other local men were charged for allegedly trafficking heroin and cocaine out of a home at 39 North School St.
Skowhegan Police Chief Ted Blais said Friday that all three arrests were related to the drug case, but said he did not have additional information on the investigation, which is being led by the Maine Drug Enforcement Agency. The Maine DEA did not respond to a request for further details Friday.
According to court records, Green lived at the North School Street home with Dominic Deon Currie, 24, and David Sincyr, 52, who is also the home owner.
After arresting Currie at a traffic stop Wednesday morning, police searched the home and found about two grams of heroin in Green’s room. They also found packaging material, cutting tools and small plastic baggies with heroin residue in them, according to the court records.
On Thursday, Green allegedly turned himself in to police and confessed to selling heroin, according to court records. He also allegedly told police that he uses about 20 bags of heroin a day and was trying to cut back.
An affidavit written by a Maine drug agent says Green told authorities “he was slowing down and wanted to stop dealing drugs.”
He is being held at the Somerset County Jail in East Madison on $2,000 cash bail or $50,000 in property and is scheduled to appear in Skowhegan District Court on June 18.
