Agents with the Maine Drug Enforcement Agency arrested a New York City man who has been sought since the summer when a police search turned up drugs in the Biddeford apartment where he had been living at the time.

Anicet Kondombo, 27, who is originally from Burkina Faso in West Africa but has been living in the Bronx, was charged with aggravated trafficking in heroin, police said.

Police had been searching for Kondombo since June, when his apartment at 131 Pool St. in Biddeford was searched and police found 4.8 grams of heroin and $3,700. The apartment is across from Clifford Park, which is designated as a drug-free zone, and that’s why he was charged with an aggravated offense, police said.

Kondombo was arrested Monday night as got off a bus in Portland. He had 13 grams of heroin prepackaged for resale in individual doses, worth a total of $2,100, police said.

Kondombo came to the United States in 2011 on a student visa, but that has expired, police said, which has led to involvement by U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement.

Assisting the MDEA in the arrest were the U.S. Marshals Service, the Biddeford police street crimes unit, and Kennebunk and South Portland police departments.

Kondombo is being held at Cumberland County Jail on $100,000 bail.
