According to the Maine Drug Enforcement Agency, Jason Bolduc, 39, of Parsonsfield, and Nichole Farrar, 35, of Sanford, are facing drug trafficking charges.
Bolduc was pulled over in Sanford on Jan. 13 following an investigation spanning four months on suspicion Bolduc was selling heroin throughout southern Maine from his home at 27 Franks Place.
During his arrest, officials seized 3.88 pounds of heroin from the rental vehicle and $2,473. Officials then tracked down a storage unit he rented in Wakefield, New Hampshire, and found $177,881 in cash, ledger books and handguns.
