Two Unity men arrested for heroin, marijuana trafficking
Unity — The Maine Drug Enforcement Agency arrested two men in Unity for unlawful trafficking in heroin, unlawful trafficking in marijuana and possession of hydromorphone May 1.
Robert Hubbard, 51, and Spencer McGarey, 43, both of Short Road in Unity were arrested, according to a release from Maine State Police Public Information Officer Stephen McCausland. Hubbard was charged with Class C trafficking in Schedule Z drugs (marijuana) and Class C possession of hydromorphone. McGarey was charged with Class C trafficking in Schedule Z drugs (marijuana) and Class C trafficking in Schedule W drugs (heroin).
Over the past two months agents from the mid-coast district task force conducted an investigation and uncover purchases of marijuana from Hubbard and heroin from McGarey, according to McCausland. Hubbard is registered with the state of Maine as a certified caregiver under the Maine Medical Use Marijuana Program (MMMP). The investigation revealed Hubbard to be selling marijuana he grew in his Unity residence to non-qualified patients.
At about 10 a.m. Thursday, drug agents served a search warrant at Hubbard’s and McGarey’s Unity home, according to police. Found were 94 marijuana plants, none of which had legible tags affixed to them bearing the qualified patients name as required under the MMMP. Also seized were more than five pounds of processed marijuana and numerous prescription pills including hydromorphone. Three guns were also seized. Police say neither Hubbard or McGarey possess prescriptions for medical marijuana and no qualified patients live at the house. Hubbard and McGarey were transported to the Waldo County Jail. The investigation is continuing as well as coordinating with the MMMP.
Assisting in this investigation were State Police and deputies from the Waldo County Sheriff’s Office.
