AUBURN — A man and a woman who lived in an Auburn home that was struck by gunfire in a drive-by shooting several weeks ago have been arrested on drug charges.

Police say 36-year-old Angel Nguyen and 31-year-old Charles Richardson were arrested Wednesday night after Maine Drug Enforcement agents found crack cocaine and evidence of drug trafficking while executing a search warrant on their first-floor Newbury Street apartment.

The Sun Journal reports that Richardson was being held on $20,000 cash bail and Nguyen on $10,000 bail at the Androscoggin County Jail.

The front of the same building was riddled by bullets during a drive-by on Nov. 6.

No one was hurt.

Investigators did not say whether the gunfire was directly related to the alleged drug dealing.
