BRUNSWICK

Two Brunswick men were indicted by a Cumberland County grand jury last week on charges that they sold Oxycontin pills and crack cocaine in unrelated incidents in Brunswick this spring.

Jonathan Hummel, 49, of 33 Union St., Apt. B, Brunswick, faces two Class A felony counts of aggravated trafficking in scheduled drugs and two Class B felony counts of trafficking in scheduled drugs for incidents that allegedly occurred in March and April.

The four charges result from an ongoing investigation conducted by the Brunswick Police Department Criminal Investigation Division and the Maine Drug Enforcement Agency, according to Brunswick Police Detective Sgt. Martin Rinaldi.

Rinaldi said Hummel allegedly sold an undisclosed amount of crack cocaine and Oxycontin pills during controlled buys on two separate occasions in two locations.

Both buys allegedly occurred within 1,000 feet of posted drug-free safe zones, which elevated two of the charges to Class A aggravated trafficking, according to Rinaldi.

Hummel was arrested on the warrants just after 7 p.m. Tuesday at his Union Street apartment.

Also indicted last week was Timothy Fraser, 41, of 12 Heath St., Brunswick.

Fraser was indicted on a Class B count of trafficking in scheduled drugs for an incident that allegedly occurred on Feb. 23. Rinaldi said Wednesday that Fraser allegedly sold an undisclosed number of Oxycontin pills during controlled buys conducted by the Brunswick Police Department and the MDEA.

While the two cases are unrelated, Rinaldi said, “Both are the result of lengthy undercover operations by the Brunswick Police Department CID and the MDEA.”
