A routine traffic stop in Lagrange resulted in the capture of a wide variety of illegal drugs and led police to arrest a Bradford man.
Why did the police stop the vehicle?
Law enforcement officials never know what they will find when they stop a vehicle on the road. On October 4, Penobscot County Sheriff’s Deputy Noah Tamulonis stopped a vehicle on Bennoch Road in Lagrange after noticing the driver was committing multiple traffic violations. Suspecting there may have been more to the story than just a bad driver, he called on other deputies to help with the investigation.
What drugs were found?
During the stop, deputies noticed evidence of criminal activity and searched the vehicle. The result of this search was the seizure of several types of illicit drugs:
- 2.2 raw grams of heroin/fentanyl
- 2.2 grams raw crack
- 18 raw grams of methamphetamine
- 16 pills of Alprazolam, commonly known as Xanax

Following the search and seizure of drugs, Bryan Jazowski, 41, of Bradford, was arrested. He faces several charges:
- Illegal Trafficking in Schedule W Drugs – Class B
- Illegal Possession of Schedule W Drugs X2 – Class C
- Illegal Possession of Schedule W Drug – Class D
- Parole Violation – Class C
He was transported to Penobscot County Jail.
Anyone with information about the illegal sale of drugs in their community is urged to contact their local law enforcement agency or the nearest Maine Drug Police office. They can also text MDEA to TIP411 (847411) or call the MDEA Infoline at 1-800-452-6457.
