SWANVILLE — A woman from Gardiner was among five people arrested Friday in Swanville on charges of trafficking either heroin or crack cocaine, according to a Maine Drug Enforcement Agency news release. All five were taken to Two Bridges Regional Jail in Wiscasset.

Taylor Andrews, 28, of Gardiner, was arrested on charges of unlawfully trafficking crack cocaine, a schedule W drug. She was released on bail.

Others arrested on a charge of unlawfully trafficking cocaine were Bobby Dean Berry, 22, Princessayana Harris, 21, and Sean Rohan, 27, all of New York, and Christopher King, 30, of Swanville, for unlawfully trafficking heroin. King also was summoned on a charge of violating bail conditions.

MDEA agents executed a search warrant Thursday at the King residence on Harriman Road. Agents reportedly found King in the process of weighing and packaging heroin for resale and Rohan was found in a bedroom attempting to conceal heroin.

A vehicle operated by Andrews, with Harris and Berry as passengers, arrived at the residence while the search was taking place.

Agents seized about 14 grams of heroin, packaging materials and $800 in suspected drug proceeds from the home and 30 grams of crack cocaine, 5 grams of cocaine hydrochloride and $2,200 in suspected drug proceeds from the vehicle and its occupants.


The arrests were the culmination of a monthlong investigation that included undercover purchases from a group distributing drugs from King’s residence. King reportedly assisted and allowed a group from New York to distribute drugs from his residence to customers throughout Waldo County.

Drug enforcement agents were assisted by Waldo County sheriff’s deputies and the Maine Warden Service during the investigation and arrests.

Bail was set at $10,000 for Berry, Rohan and Harris. No bail was set for King because of his bail violation.
