BIDDEFORD — A complaint regarding a man who was ringing a doorbell and disappearing led to the discovery of 27 grams of crack cocaine on the alleged door ringer.

Police received a call Friday around 1:45 a.m. from a resident reporting he was being harassed by an individual who had earlier rang his door bell and disappeared. The caller identified the individual as Anthony Banks and mentioned Banks usually had a gun on him, according to a statement from the Biddeford Police Department.

On Sept. 11, Banks refused to sign a departmental cease harassment warning he was issued for similar activity involving the complainant, according to police.

A patrol officer responded to 53 Raymond St. to meet with the complainant Friday morning while another patrol officer and the shift supervisor began a search of the area for Banks.

A black male, identified as Banks, was located in the area of Ritz and Hill streets. Banks was found in possession of 27 grams of crack cocaine and was within 1,000 feet of a safe zone, according to police.

He has been charged with aggravated trafficking in a Schedule W drug, a Class C felony.

Banks was also found to have an outstanding warrant in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania for failure to appear on drug charges, according to police.
