NY Men Facing Drug Trafficking Charges

Drug SeizureThree men from New York are facing drug trafficking charges after they threw baggies of drugs out of the car after being stopped by police.

On Aug. 16, 2020, at approximately 3 p.m., Maine State Police stopped a vehicle on I-295 at mile marker 44 Northbound for speed. Upon investigation, all three passengers began acting suspiciously. Ultimately, several white bags were thrown from the car window while the Trooper went back to his cruiser. The bags were located and seized and all three men were arrested. Ralph Scurlock, 31; William Pickney, 52; and Edward McDowell, 26; all from the Bronx, NY, were transported to Twin Bridges Jail in Sagadahoc County. The drugs were tested and Troopers learned there was 34 grams of cocaine, and 148 grams of fentanyl. All three were charged with Aggravated Trafficking class A crime.
