Four arrested in cocaine ring
MEXICO -- Four men were arrested late Thursday after a year-long investigation during which undercover drug agents bought cocaine from them 10 times, according to Maine State Police spokesman Steve McCausland.
Police charged Wayne Sinclair, 53, of Mexico with two counts of unlawful trafficking in scheduled drugs; Daniel Allen, 53, of Mexico with three counts of aggravated trafficking in scheduled drugs; Darren Joudrey, 51, of Mexico with two counts of unlawful trafficking in scheduled drugs; and Dana Lee Richardson, 54, of Carthage with one count of aggravated trafficking in scheduled drugs.
Thirty police from several agencies were involved in the arrests and searches of the mens' homes. Police seized drugs, cash scales, packing material and phones, McCausland said.
Over the last year, the undercover drug buys had taken place at several homes and businesses around Rumford and Mexico, including Tommy Guns Pit Stop bar, according to McCausland.
The men were taken to Oxford County Jail, where bail was set at between $3,000 and $7,000.
