Police: Massive heroin operation uncovered in Maine

Police in Maine uncovered a massive heroin operation, with officers calling it the largest drug bust in the state’s history.

Police seized 10,000 pre-packaged doses of heroin after responding to a car crash in Scarborough. Officers said the driver, 33-year-old Connecticut man James Jamison, was headed to northern Maine to sell the heroin when he crashed into a truck.

Jamison allegedly fled the scene on the foot and police issued an alert to people in the area to lock their doors.

Jamison was found by police an hour later, where he was allegedly hiding at a nearby hotel. Police said he was found with 2 pounds of heroin, worth $500,000.
