Anson Man Leads Police Chase, Arrested with 1+ Pounds of Fentanyl
An Anson man is facing charges after leading police on a pursuit that resulted in the seizure of over a pound of fentanyl.
Who Is the Suspect?
Cody Mosher, 28, is charged with aggravated trafficking in scheduled drugs, eluding a police officer, assault, and refusing to submit to arrest or detention.
Where Was the Police Chase?
The January 19th pursuit began when deputies tried to execute a search warrant on his Chevrolet Cruze in the parking lot of a laundromat on the Waterville Road in Skowhegan. At first, Mosher refused to get out of the vehicle, but then fled the scene, hitting a Somerset County Sheriff's detective in the process. The Morning Sentinel reports the detective received minor injuries. The pursuit traveled 13 miles, from Skowhegan to Norridgewock and then into Madison.
A Maine State Police Trooper ended the chase in Madison when he struck the Cruze with his cruiser, forcing it into a nearby vehicle. Mosher was transported to Redington-Fairview Hospital for a medical evaluation before being taken to the Somerset County Jail.
What Was Seized From His Vehicle?
Police searched the vehicle and seized more than $10,000 in cash, cocaine and a pound and a half of fentanyl. More than 330 illegal drugs in pill form were also taken from the vehicle. Officials say the street value of the drugs was more than $90,000.
Lancaster had an outstanding warrant in York County and two outstanding warrants from New Hampshire. His bail was set at $50,000 and his first court appearance is scheduled in May.
