Kennebunk police and the Maine Drug Enforcement Agency on Tuesday charged a local man with aggravated trafficking in heroin in connection with three non-fatal overdoses.

Christopher Robart, 27, of 41 York St. in Kennebunk, was being held on $25,000 bail at York County Jail after his arrest Dec. 17 on aggravated trafficking in heroin, the agencies announced. In the weeks since, the MDEA identified Robart as the source of heroin that resulted in three separate overdoses, two in Kennebunk and one in Lyman, the release said.

In all three cases, rescue workers used Narcan to reverse the effects of the heroin and saved the people’s lives.

Police charged Robart with two more counts of aggravated trafficking in heroin based on the overdose cases and his bail was increased by $50,000, police said.
