The Facts Inside Our Reporter’s Notebook
The Maine branch of the U.S. Drug Enforcement Agency busted a massive shipment of cocaine hiding in a sheet cake in a perp’s car this week.
The agency on its Facebook page said it arrested a man and a woman “following the discovery of a significant amount of cocaine in their vehicle along I-295.”
The bust was made on the basis of an anonymous tip, the DEA said; a drug-sniffing dog helped locate the four-pound bag of cocaine, valued at $200,000, in the man’s car.
“Also seized was approximately $1900 in cash, believed to be the proceeds of illegal drug sales,” the DEA said, adding that “more arrests are possible” in the investigation.
