The arrest was the result of a monthslong investigation into Lee allegedly selling drugs throughout Somerset and Kennebec counties.

“Detectives seized approximately 70 grams of cocaine, 30 grams of Fentanyl powder, digital scales, illegal drug related documentation, and illegal drug related paraphernalia/packaging materials,” Somerset County Sheriff Dale Lancaster said in a news release Friday. ” The seized drugs have an approximate street value of $10,000.”

A passenger in the vehicle was also searched by detectives, the release said, but was later released.

Lee was charged with aggravated trafficking in scheduled drugs, trafficking in scheduled drugs, and violating conditions of release. She also had two outstanding warrants out of Lincoln County at the time of her arrest.

The investigation into Lee is ongoing, Lancaster said, and additional charges against her and the passenger may be brought forward by the Somerset County District Attorney’s Office.

Lancaster said the Waterville, Winslow and Fairfield police departments assisted with the investigation.

Lee’s bail was set at $15,000 cash during a hearing on Friday. Lee is currently being held at the Somerset County Jail in East Madison. Her next court appearance is scheduled for April 10.
