Maine Drug Enforcement Agents with the Downeast Drug Task Force have been conducting the month-long investigation, with help from the Hancock County Sheriff's Office, Ellsworth and State Police. The investigation included the undercover purchase of heroin.

Drug agents executed a search warrant at the home of Michael and Alicia Kane, at 6 Francis Drive in Lamoine and recovered approximately 51 grams of heroin, with a street value of $15,000. The four people at the residence were arrested and taken to the Hancock County Jail without incident. Bail was set at $10,000 cash for Biggs, $5,000 cash for the Kanes, and $1,000 for Andrews.
