SKOWHEGAN — The Somerset County Sheriff’s Office arrested two men after finding heroin and crack cocaine while executing a search warrant Thursday.

According to a news release from Sheriff Dale Lancaster, the sheriff’s office conducted the search around 1:45 p.m. Thursday at the home of David and Beverly Sincyr on Dartmouth Street. During the search, police found about 65 grams of heroin, 35 grams of crack cocaine, controlled pills, $4,240 in cash, drug-related paraphernalia and drug-related documentation. The seized drugs and cash were all possessed by Angel Pacheco, of Waterbury, Connecticut, police said.

Pacheco, 45, was arrested and charged with aggravated trafficking in a schedule W drug for the heroin, aggravated trafficking in a schedule W drug for the cocaine, possession of a schedule W drug for the heroin and possession of a schedule W drug for the cocaine. Pacheco’s drug charges are aggravated because of the amount of drugs that he possessed — over 6 grams of heroin and over 32 grams of crack cocaine — and the fact that he has prior felony-level drug convictions in Connecticut.

David Sincyr, 56, was arrested and charged with trafficking in a schedule W drug for the heroin and trafficking in a scheduled drug for the cocaine.

Both men were taken to the Somerset County Jail. Sincyr is being held in lieu of $50,000 cash bail, while Pacheco is being held in lieu of $100,000 cash bail. Both are scheduled to appear in court on July 11.

The search warrant for the residence on Dartmouth Street was part of an ongoing investigation into heroin and crack cocaine being sold in and around Somerset County. Additional charges may be brought against Pacheco, Sincyr and others once the case is reviewed by the Somerset County District Attorney’s Office.
