FARMINGTON — Three people are facing multiple drug charges after allegedly bringing heroin to Maine from Connecticut, according to Gerry Baril, Drug Enforcement Agency supervisor for central Maine.

Scott Baldwin, 44, of Farmington; Chelsea Daggett, 18, of Farmington; and Gregory Schiche Jr., 30, who has Strong and New Sharon addresses; were arrested Friday, Baril said.

All three are charged with possession of scheduled drugs and importation of scheduled drugs. Both charges are a Class C felony.

Daggett and Schiche were each released Saturday on $5,000 unsecured bond. Baldwin was being held Monday afternoon at the Franklin County jail in lieu of $500 bail, jail officials said.

According to Baril, they had driven to Connecticut to buy heroin and were heading back to Farmington when drug enforcement agents, state police and Franklin County sheriff’s deputies stopped the car around 11 p.m. Friday on Main Street in Wilton.

Six police vehicles were “laying in wait” on Route 4 along the Wilton and Farmington townline to stop the car, which was being driven by the owner, Daggett, according to Baril. The arrests were the result of a monthlong investigation that is still ongoing, Baril said.

Agents conducted a warranted search of the car that uncovered around five grams of heroin divided into about 50 individual bags, Baril said. He said it totaled about $500 worth of heroin.
