Two Augusta residents were arrested and charged with multiple drug offenses Wednesday after authorities executed a search warrant at a home on Old Belgrade Road.

Joshua Arbour, 35, and Kimberly Hopkins, 30, were charged with trafficking heroin, possession of heroin and crack cocaine and endangering the welfare of a child. Arbour also was charged with a felony for violating conditions of release, because he was out on bail for a previous drug trafficking charge.

According to a news release from Interim Sheriff Ryan P. Reardon, sheriff’s detectives conducted a monthlong investigation into the trafficking operation. The search of the home led to the discovery and seizure of heroin, crack cocaine and more than $3,000 cash.

The Maine Drug Enforcement Agency and the Augusta Police Department assisted in the investigation, according to Reardon.
