Limestone police seize meth, drug paraphernalia, cash from erratic driver

LIMESTONE, Maine — After stopping an erratic driver on Access Highway Monday night, Limestone police reported finding illegal drugs in the vehicle.

Few details were immediately released but a statement issued Tuesday by the Limestone Police Department indicated that “all three occupants of the vehicle were charged with various drug related crimes.”

The identities of those involved and specific charges were not released.

Sgt. Joey Smith initiated the stop at 9:50 p.m. on May 6 when he spotted the vehicle driving erratically while he was on routine patrol.

Smith also reported seeing the driver switch places with the front seat passenger and later determined that the original driver’s license had been suspended, according to the release.

While conducting a search of the vehicle after pulling it over, Smith “located multiple prescription medications, drug paraphernalia, and methamphetamine,” in addition to “cash and an electronic scale.”

Smith was assisted by members of the Fort Fairfield and Caribou police departments as well as the U.S. Border Patrol.
