Three men from Waterbury, Connecticut, were arrested at a motel in Ellsworth on Thursday and charged with trafficking in oxycodone.

The three were charged after investigators with the Maine Drug Enforcement Agency seized 140 oxycodone pills and $14,000 in cash in a search of the men’s room at the motel, said Stephen McCausland, spokesman for the Maine Department of Public Safety.

McCausland said the pills had a street value of $6,000. He said the cash was believed to be the proceeds of drug sales.

Arrested were Carlos Mercedes Pemberton, 39, who, because of his criminal history, was charged with aggravated trafficking in oxycodone; Jose Javier Maisonet Jr., 22, who was charged with trafficking in oxycodone; and Luis Angel Hernandez, 33, who was charged with trafficking in oxycodone.

All three were taken to the Hancock County Jail. Bail for Pemberton was set at $10,000 cash, and bail for Maisonet and Hernandez was set at $5,000 cash.

An initial hearing for all three has been scheduled for Dec. 11 in Ellsworth Unified Court.
