A month after they were arrested for heroin trafficking, a Brunswick couple are facing new charges for heroin possession.

The couple was again arrested by MDEA and Brunswick police at their Oak Street apartment on Jan. 14, following a bail check.

Brunswick Police Det. Rich Cutliffe said Justin Coffin was charged with Class B unlawful possession of a scheduled drug and Tara Dry-Crooker with Class C unlawful possession or a scheduled drug.

Cutliffe said police conducted the bail check on Coffin after he received information that Dry- Crooker and Coffin were continuing in illegal drug activity. He said police found about a bundle and a half of heroin — which weighed approximately 4 grams — and some empty baggies in the trash with residue that field tested positive for heroin.

Coffin and Dry-Crooker, both 35, had been arrested on Dec. 18, 2015, and charged with heroin trafficking. According to a press release issued after the arrests, drug agents from the Maine Drug Enforcement Agency searched the couple’s Oak Street apartment and found 800 bags of heroin and $5,000 in cash.
