A pair of suspected heroin dealers is behind bars.

24-year-old Justin Pinkham and 23-year-old Logan Hanson, both of Ellsworth, are charged with trafficking in heroin and violating conditions of release.

Agents from the Downeast and Mid Coast District Task Forces executed a Search Warrant at their Bucksport Road residence Thursday.

They were assisted by officers from the Ellsworth Police Department and Deputies of the Hancock County Sheriff’s Department.

Investigators say the two sold heroin to undercover agents during a sting operation.

During their search, agents found 10 grams of Heroin, 12-hundred dollars cash, and marijuana.

The two were taken to the Hancock County Jail and are being held on $5,000 cash bail.
