WAYNE — Two people have been arrested after a police search of a Mt. Pisgah Road home turned up nearly a dozen guns and several different types of illegal drugs, the Kennebec County Sheriff’s Office said.

The home’s occupants — Michael J. Gorman, 53, and Heather D. Ayotte, 48, both of Wayne — were arrested on several charges after officers from Kennebec County Sheriff’s Office, Winthrop Police and Monmouth Police searched the home at 196 Mt. Pisgah Road.

Deputy Jeff Boudreau went to the home on Aug. 3 at 2:37 p.m. to serve a protection order on Gorman. The order required Gorman to give up any firearms in his possession, according to a news release from the sheriff’s office.

Lt. Chris Read said Gorman, a convicted felon who is not allowed to possess firearms, indicated there were no firearms in the residence. But Read said in an interview that Boudreau had seen some firearms while Gorman was packing a bag with some belongings.

Police obtained a search warrant for the home and seized 11 firearms, 8.4 grams of fentanyl, 5.9 grams of methamphetamine, 34 grams of mushrooms and 2.4 grams of cocaine base.

Boudreau arrested Gorman and Ayotte, whom Read said was also prohibited from possessing firearms due to a previous drug conviction.

Both were charged with aggravated trafficking in scheduled drugs, two counts of furnishing of scheduled drugs, two counts of possession of scheduled drugs, illegal possession of firearms, criminal simulation and criminal forfeiture of property.
