Buxton Police joined Maine Drug Enforcement Agents Wednesday in the seizure of crack cocaine and firearms, one of which was stolen.
Law enforcement has been watching Kelly-Klaus Sahabo, 18, of Buxton for several months, as part of an ongoing investigation into the distribution of crack cocaine throughout York and Cumberland Counties. Officials say that on several occasions, undercover agents were able to purchase crack cocaine from Sahabo at his residence, 58 Bradbury Lane in Buxton, as well as at several other locations in the region.
On Wednesday night, at approximately 11:30, Buxton Police Officers conducted a traffic stop of Sahabo's vehicle, as he left his home. Sahabo was arrested on the drug trafficking warrants and transported to the York County Jail, where his bail was set at $500.
Agents then searched Sahabo's Bradbury Lane residence, where they seized approximately 76 grams of crack cocaine, two firearms, and $3,125 in suspected drug proceeds. The approximate street value of the seized cocaine is $7,600. Officials say one of the firearms seized in this search had been reported stolen during a motor vehicle burglary in Portland in October of 2021.
Sahabo is charged with two counts of Class B Trafficking in Crack Cocaine. Officials say more charges are forthcoming, for the seized drugs and firearms.
