AUGUSTA — Two men, one from Oakland and the other from New York City, were indicted last week by a Kennebec County grand jury on multiple drug trafficking charges.

Eric Caswell, 41, of Oakland and Tarik Squire, 37, of Bronx, New York, were arrested Jan. 2 by Augusta police and Maine Drug Enforcement agents, who were waiting for them at the Super 8 motel in Augusta.

Police said Caswell and Squire possessed bags of heroin, fentanyl powder and crack cocaine when arrested.

Officers said they targeted the motel after learning Squire had traveled from New York City to Maine with an unknown amount of narcotics and checked into the motel, where he arrived in a pickup truck driven by Caswell.

Using a drug-sniffing dog, police located five plastic bags containing 47.3 grams of heroin/fentanyl and 169.5 grams of cocaine base, or crack, a digital scale and $995 in cash, according to a probable cause affidavit filed by Special Agent Nathan Walker of the Maine Drug Enforcement Agency.

Squire was indicted on charges of aggravated trafficking in schedule W drugs, cocaine base, Dec. 4, 2019; two counts of aggravated trafficking in scheduled drugs, heroin; two counts of aggravated trafficking in scheduled drugs, fentanyl powder; two counts of aggravated trafficking in scheduled drugs, cocaine base; and criminal forfeiture of $995, Jan. 2 in Augusta.

Caswell was indicted on charges of aggravated trafficking in scheduled drug, heroin; unlawful trafficking in scheduled drugs, heroin; aggravated trafficking in scheduled drugs, cocaine base; unlawful trafficking in scheduled drugs, cocaine base, Jan. 2, in Augusta; and conspiracy to commit unlawful trafficking in scheduled drugs, between Dec. 4, 2019, and Jan. 2, 2020, in Augusta.
