FARMINGTON — Two Farmington brothers have been indicted on charges of drug trafficking and conspiracy by a Franklin County grand jury.

Anthony Gage, 26, and Jacob Gage, 30, were arrested on Jan. 6 by Farmington police as the result of an ongoing investigation into the brothers’ alleged “street-level” heroin dealing operation.

On Friday a Franklin County grand jury indicted the each of the brothers on one count of unlawful drug trafficking of a scheduled drug, class B, and conspiracy to commit trafficking, class A. Jacob Gage also was indicted on one count of criminal forfeiture.

Also indicted Friday were two men accused of stealing more than $2,200 worth of property from four condominiums in Carrabassett Valley in December.

Shawn Anthony, 19, of Freeport, and Rene Mesones, 20, of North Yarmouth, were each indicted on 11 counts, including four counts of burglary, class B; one felony count of theft, class C; two misdemeanor counts of theft; and four misdemeanor counts of criminal mischief.
