Two New York men were arrested Tuesday morning in Pittston for allegedly trafficking heroin, following an investigation by the Kennebec County Sheriff’s Office.

Arrested were 27-year-old Anthony Robert Cappuccio and 25-year-old Devin Jarrell Jackson, both of Bronx, New York, according to Deputy Chief William Johnson, of the sheriff’s office.

Police made the arrest around 10:30 a.m. during a traffic stop on South Beech Hill Road, Johnson said, after investigating the two men and securing an arrest warrant. Maine State Police assisted with the arrest.

Both men were charged with aggravated trafficking of scheduled drugs and possession of scheduled drugs, said Johnson, who identified the drug as heroin. Johnson did not know the amount of heroin the men were allegedly carrying or what their bail was set at.

“This is an all day thing (the detectives) are working on,” Johnson said. “It was an ongoing investigation, and their work culminated in the arrest warrants and a traffic stop.”

Police took the men to the Kennebec County jail in Augusta, Johnson said.
