A New York man and a Veazie woman were arrested at a Bangor motel for allegedly selling oxycodone pills, according to the Maine Drug Enforcement Agency.

Found Thursday in a room at the Comfort Inn on Bangor Mall Boulevard were 260 30-milligram oxycodone pills and about $40,000 in cash, the MDEA said. Arrested were Steve “Swift” Abreau, 25, of the Bronx, New York, and Meredith Perrone, 32, of Veazie. Both are charged with Class B trafficking in scheduled drugs.

Perrone’s bail was set at $25,000. Abreau’s bail was set at $70,000.

The arrests followed reports of suspected drug activity after witnesses saw many people coming and going from the motel room. Police conducted an undercover buy before the arrests.
