AUGUSTA, Maine — A monthlong investigation into heroin trafficking out of an Old Belgrade Road residence led to the arrests of a man and a woman Wednesday, sheriff’s deputies said.

Joshua Arbour, 35, and Kimberly Hopkins, 30, are facing multiple charges, according to a statement from the Kennebec County Sheriff’s Office.

Deputies and detectives executed a search warrant at the residence Wednesday, according to the statement. Heroin, crack cocaine and more than $3,000 in cash were recovered.

Arbour and Hopkins are facing charges of trafficking heroin, possession of heroin, possession of crack cocaine and endangering the welfare of a child, the statement said. Arbour also was charged with violation of his bail because he was out on a prior drug trafficking charge.

The suspects were taken to the Kennebec County Jail. Augusta police and the Maine Drug Enforcement Agency aided in the investigation.
