LEWISTON — Two Maine women have court dates after getting arrested on drug charges.

The Sun Journal reports that Carolyn DeBerry of Auburn was arrested at her home last week on a Maine Drug Enforcement Agency warrant charging unlawful trafficking in scheduled drugs.

Agents allege a search warrant executed at DeBerry’s home turned up 10 grams of heroin, 64 oxycodone pills, $3,700 in cash, scales and other items related to drug trafficking. The value of the drugs is estimated at $4,000.

Based on information gathered at DeBerry’s residence, agents seized another 20 grams of heroin from an apartment in Lewiston.

An Augusta woman was arrested in Lewiston in a separate investigation. Police say Angela Crabtree had 128 grams of crack cocaine worth almost $13,000.

Both are in jail awaiting court dates.
