Six people were arrested in Oxford County early Friday on heroin and cocaine trafficking changes.

The arrests came after the Maine Drug Enforcement Agency, along with Maine State Police tactical team members, executed two search warrants in the town of Mexico.

The searches, at two separate mobile homes, were part of an ongoing investigation of drug trafficking from Massachusetts to the Rumford-Mexico area.

Agents seized heroin, cocaine and crack cocaine that had been packaged for resale with a cumulative value of about $13,000. They also found scales and other trafficking materials.

The MDEA said that Jerry Philogene, 26, of Boston, Peguy Pacouloute, 27, of Mattapan, Massachusetts, and Travis Tidswell, 41, of Mexico were charged with aggravated trafficking in heroin and cocaine. They were being held without bail at the Oxford County Jail.

Derrell “Slim” Weathers, 28, of Boston, Joshua “Tiny” Campbell, 30, of Mexico and Glen Lane, 32, of Mexico were each charged with aggravated trafficking in heroin.

Bail was set at $40,000 for Weathers and $15,000 each for Lane and Campbell.

All six are expected to make their initial appearances Monday in Oxford County Superior Court.
