BIDDEFORD — The Maine Drug Enforcement Agency arrested a Biddeford suspect on Thursday in a drug bust that uncovered more than 200 grams of crack cocaine, according to a Maine State Police press release.

Tremayne A. McWilliams, 28, of 5 Pierson’s Lane was taken into custody for unlawful trafficking in drugs, said state police spokesman Stephen McCausland. Over the last two months, agents for the MDEA and the York District Task Force had conducted an investigation into McWilliams’ cocaine sales within Biddeford.

On Thursday MDEA agents, parole officers and officers with the Biddeford Police executed an arrest warrant and search warrant at McWilliams’ home, McCausland said. With the help of a drug sniffing dog officers were able to find 235 grams of powder and crack cocaine, a loaded 357-magnum revolver and $38,027 in suspected drug proceeds.

The estimated street value of the drugs seized was $23,000, he said.

Prior to the arrest, McWilliams was on probation as a result of a drug conviction in 2016.

McWilliams was taken to York County Jail where bail was set at $50,000 cash.

Additional charges are expected.
