Earlier this week, a deputy and a K9 officer Vixen from the Kennebec County Sheriff's Department gave us another reason to be extremely proud of the work done by our local law enforcement agencies.

According to a press release from the Kennebec County Sheriff's Department, a Thursday afternoon traffic stop in Gardiner lead to the arrest of a man and a woman on drug charges.  Several types of drugs, including Subuxone Strips, were allegedly found inside the vehicle.

The press release said, in part:

"On October 22, 2020 at approximately 4:47 p.m. Deputy William Kulakowski stopped a car on West Street in Gardiner.  Deputy Boudreau and K-9 Vixen responded and she alerted on the car.  A search of the car revealed Suboxone Strips, marijuana and some drug paraphernalia"

Arrested were 36 year old Deanne Duff and 39 year old James Truman, both of Gardiner.

Duff was arrested for Possession of a Schedule W drug and Violating Conditions of Release.   Her bail was set at $750.00, not to have contact with Truman and not to possess or consume illegal drugs.

Truman was arrested for Possession of a Schedule W drug.  His bail was set at $500.00, not to have contact with Duff and not to possess or consume illegal drugs.

Again, thanks to all the members of law enforcement in Central Maine for all they do to keep our communities safe.
