AUGUSTA — A Pennsylvania man who reportedly had crack cocaine in his boxer shorts is facing charges of unlawful trafficking in cocaine base and illegal importation of cocaine into Maine.

Isaiah Dunham, 20, of Allentown, Pennsylvania, was arrested Friday after a traffic stop on Fuller Street in Augusta.

On Monday, a judge kept Dunham’s bail at $25,000 following an initial hearing Monday at the Capital Judicial Center via video from the Kennebec County jail.

Assistant District Attorney Tracy DeVoll said Dunham had faced a robbery charge in Pennsylvania, but she was unable to determine its outcome as of Monday. Dunham also is the subject of an arrest warrant in Pennsylvania, but authorities there declined to extradite him, she said.

Records from the Court of Common Pleas in Lehigh County, Pennsylvania, indicate Dunham forfeited $5,000 bail after failing to appear in court there in January 2016 on a charge of giving false identification to a law enforcement officer.

Dunham was arrested Friday in Augusta during the traffic stop after a drug-sniffing dog indicated Dunham had drugs on him. After being confronted by police, Dunham “admitted to having several grams of crack cocaine hidden in his boxer shorts,” according to an affidavit by Detective Michael Bickford, of the Kennebec County Sheriff’s Office. Dunham then gave the drugs to the police.


It also said that officers found bus tickets from Lewiston to Boston, and tickets from Boston to New York, dated July 28, 2016, in the rear seat where Dunham had been sitting. Dunham initially was reported as being from Bronx, New York.

Dunham said the car was being driven by Kimberly Hopkins, 35, of Augusta, who is free on bail conditions requiring her to submit to search and test at any time. Hopkins was indicted in June on charges of unlawful trafficking in heroin, Feb. 11, 2016, unlawful possession of heroin and unlawful possession of cocaine base, and two counts of endangering the welfare of a child, all March 9, 2016, and all in Augusta. She is scheduled for a hearing later this month at the Capital Judicial Center.

Hopkins was permitted to leave the scene, as was Greagoray Baynard, also of Allentown, Pennsylvania, another passenger in Hopkins’ vehicle.

Dunham also appears to be the same person who was the victim of a shooting that took place in February 2014 in Allentown, when he was 17.

Conditions of Dunham’s bail prohibit him from having contact with Hopkins and Baynard.
