Drug Bust 

A man from New Jersey is in jail in Maine, facing drug charges after a tip Tuesday night led drug enforcement agents to a motel room in Ellsworth.

Agents raided a room at the Comfort Inn and arrested 22-year old Andre Torres.

They say they found more than $1000 cash and 70-oxycontin tablets, with a street value of more than $7000

Torres’ bail is set at $10,000 cash or 50,000 dollars surety.

If convicted, he could face a maximum of ten years in prison.
