A pair in Mexico, Maine were arrested for the second time on Friday in under three months on drug trafficking charges, Maine law enforcement officials said in a statement.

The suspects identified as Randy Aron and Jessica Pare, both 40-years-old, were charged with Class A aggravated trafficking of cocaine, opioids, and violating their conditions of release, according to MDEA Commander Scott Pelletier.

Both Aron and Pare were booked into the Oxford County Jail and are being held without bail, The Sun Journal reported.

Class A drug trafficking crimes carry penalties punishable by up to 30 years behind bars and a fine of $50,000.

Pelletier revealed that a joint operation by state drug agents with support from the Oxford County Sheriff’s Office, Rumford police, and Maine State Police raided Pare’s apartment at 3:30 a.m.

Law enforcement officials said officers discovered nine grams of prepackaged crack cocaine, Suboxone strips, and $8,350 in cash. Pelletier indicated that some of the currency was used to purchase drugs, by undercover investigators.

Suboxone is a prescription medicine to treat adults who are addicted to opioids.
