PARIS — A Paris man is free on $750 cash bail after being charged with selling heroin outside the Save-A-Lot food store on Main Street.

Brandon Jeselskis, 24, was charged with unlawful trafficking in heroin, a felony punishable by up to 10 years in prison.

An agent with the Maine Drug Enforcement Agency wrote in an affidavit that he received information June 20 that Jeselskis was selling heroin and planning to make a delivery outside the store that day. The agent and Maine State Police officers waited in the parking lot and when Jeselskis showed up they detained him.

“Jeselskis was searched and two aluminum packets containing suspected heroin was discovered on his person,” the agent wrote.

Jeselskis was taken to the Oxford County Jail and released on $5,000 cash bail later that day.

At his court appearance Friday, bail was reduced to $750 cash and he was ordered to appear in court Aug. 22, according to a corrections officer at the jail.
