Found hidden inside their vehicle was 68 grams of heroin/fentanyl, and a search of the residence located an additional 14 grams.
All three were charged with Class B Unlawful Trafficking in schedule W drugs. Bail on Randall was set at $15,000 cash, while bail on Marcheterre and Fontaine was set at $10,000 cash each.
All three are currently at the York County Jail awaiting an initial court appearance.
