LEWISTON, Maine — Two men have been arrested in Lewiston on heroin trafficking charges during an investigation into two suspected drug overdose deaths over the weekend in Androscoggin County.

Vincent Steed of Lewiston and Devin Webbert of Bronx, New York, are facing charges of aggravated trafficking of heroin and crack cocaine.

Law enforcement searched a Lewiston apartment Monday evening as part of the deaths investigation and say they seized 53 packets of heroin and 72 bags of crack cocaine.

Steed and Webbert, who were staying at the apartment, were being held on $50,000 bail each. It was not immediately known if they are being represented by attorneys.

The Maine Drug Enforcement Agency is continuing to investigate the source of any suspected drugs that may have led to the two deaths.
