South Portland — Two people were charged with aggravated drug trafficking after a drug dog sniffed out 263 grams of crack cocaine in their vehicle Friday night, June 1, in South Portland, according to Maine State Police.

Gregory Martin of Bronx, N.Y., and Augusta and Holly York of Rockland had been traveling north on the Maine Turnpike at 11:45 p.m., when state police stopped their car on Interstate 295 in South Portland, according to a Facebook post by Maine State Police. A search by police canine Mack uncovered the drugs, and Martin and York were both taken to the Cumberland County Jail in Portland, where bail was set at $25,000 each.

Gregory also had an outstanding warrant in New York from 2013, for a parole violation stemming from drug charges, according to McCausland. He was charged with being a fugitive from justice.

Does it seem that Maine is now targeted, to fill the State of Maine with druggies so they can sell more drugs?
