    Two New Hampshire residents have been arrested in heroin trafficking charges in Maine, including a man police say may be responsible for two recent overdoses.

    Police say 29-year-old Jeffery Ansello and 44-year-old Angela Whiting, both of North Hampton, New Hampshire, were arrested Saturday in Kittery at a U.S. Route 1 convenience store.

    Investigators say they also had two grams of heroin on them.

    Police say Ansello is also a suspect in at least two recent overdoses. Chief Theodor Short says neither overdose was fatal.

    Both are being held on at the York County Jail on $2,500 bail. It could not be determined if they had lawyers.
