Police: Trooper and K-9 find crack cocaine hidden in vehicle in Greenland; two arrested
GREENLAND — A trooper and his narcotic detection dog found about 190 grams of suspected crack cocaine hidden inside a vehicle after pulling two people over.
According to police, a trooper stopped a 2016 Dodge Charger for following too closely on Interstate 95 northbound in Greenland. The occupants of the vehicle were identified as Lacie Chapman, 32, of Lewiston, Maine, and Taheen Mungo, 34, of Waterville, Maine.
A record check indicated that Mungo had an outstanding arrest warrant for a probation violation out of New York. He was taken into custody on the arrest warrant.
Chapman allegedly consented to a search of the vehicle, which led to the finding of about 190 grams of suspected crack cocaine by the trooper and narcotic detection dog.
Chapman was arrested for conspiracy/possession of a narcotic drug with intent to distribute. She is being held on a $5,000 cash bail.
Mungo was charged with being a fugitive from justice and possession of a narcotic drug with intent to distribute. He is being held on a $50,000 cash bail.
Chapman and Mungo appeared in court on Friday morning.
