In January, Maine Public Safety spokesman Stephen McCausland said undercover drug agents bought cocaine from the men 10 times over the course of a year.
Police from several agencies were involved in the arrests and searches of the men's homes. Police seized drugs, cash scales, packing material and phones, McCausland said. Undercover drug purchases took place at several homes and businesses in Rumford and Mexico, including Tommy Guns Pitstop bar, said McCausland.
