Police say Michael Harmon, 26, of Casco gave them a fake name when he was being questioned about drug activity in Riverbank Park in Westbrook.

The problem was, the person whose name he used was wanted by police.

Police were questioning Harmon about reports that he was using drugs in Riverbank Park at 10:45 a.m. Sunday, when the park was full of children.

Harmon eventually gave police his real name and was charged with selling heroin in a drug-free safe zone, which makes the charge more severe, said Westbrook Police Chief William Baker.

Harmon was already out on bail from an earlier domestic violence charge.

He was being held on $50,000 bail at the Cumberland County Jail.
