Acting on a tip from the Maine Drug Enforcement Agency, Bangor police stopped a vehicle on Union Street around 6:30 p.m. Harvey, the passenger in the car, had just come from a local bus station.

Due to a recent drug trafficking conviction in Maine, Harvey had post-conviction bail conditions which subjected him to searches by law enforcement. The officers searched the vehicle and Harvey’s alleged belongings and found a large amount of suspected cocaine and heroin.
