YORK COUNTY, Maine (NEWS CENTER) -- Sanford Police arrested a man on charges of terrorizing and aggravated trafficking of scheduled drugs on Monday.

35-year-old Jesse Roy, of Sanford, was arrested on charges of Terrorizing with the use of a dangerous weapon and Aggravated Trafficking in Scheduled Drugs.

Police had been seeking Roy since Friday, stemming from an incident involving a firearm that took place at his residence. A warrant of arrest was obtained by police on Friday for the charge of Terrorizing with the use of a dangerous weapon. Detectives from the Sanford Police Department conducted surveillance on the residence and observed Mr. Roy exit his residence around 8 p.m. Monday night and get into a vehicle. Patrol officers were quickly in position and performed a felony traffic stop and arrested Mr. Roy without incident; he was alone in the vehicle.

Shortly after the traffic stop, detectives executed a search warrant of Mr. Roy's residence. As a result of that search warrant, 94 grams of suspected heroin, $24,000 in cash, and a semi-automatic firearm were all seized from the residence. The street value of the suspected heroin is valued at around $14,000.

Mr. Roy's bail was set at $50,000 cash. He is expected to appear in court on Wednesday.
