Vacation Mishap
Two New Yorkers Seized in Gun/Drug Bungle

Carlos Peralta, 26, and Waldemor Torres, 29, both of whom are from New York, were arrested in an apartment at 1 Avon Place on January 14, after a gun accidentally went off, propelling the bullet through the wall of the apartment next door.

The two gentlemen involved in the gunplay neglected to inform police how this mishap occurred.

Aside from the gun discharging, the two were also selling crack cocaine on their visit to Portland, according to police. Torres was charged with reckless conduct with a firearm and both men were also charged with aggravated trafficking in Schedule W drugs.

They’re going to be here for a while longer—in the Cumberland County Jail—where bail was set at $50,000 surety or $25,000 cash.
