AUBURN, Maine (AP) - A man and a woman who lived in an Auburn home that was struck by gunfire in a drive-by shooting several weeks ago have been arrested on drug charges.

Police say Angel Nguyen, 36, and Charles Richardson, 31, were arrested Wednesday night after Maine Drug Enforcement agents found crack cocaine and evidence of drug trafficking while executing a search warrant on their first-floor Newbury Street apartment.

The Sun Journal reports that Richardson was being held on $20,000 cash bail and Nguyen on $10,000 bail at the Androscoggin County Jail.

The front of the same building was riddle by bullets during a drive-by on Nov. 6.

No one was hurt.

Investigators did not say whether the gunfire was directly related to the alleged drug dealing.
