GREENVILLE, Maine — A transient and a Greenville man who police say were selling drugs to children under the age of 18 were arrested Wednesday after a search was executed at the Pritham Avenue apartment they shared.

Donald J. Abbott-Roy, 18, the transient, and Corey Mitchell, 19, of Greenville were each charged with aggravated trafficking in scheduled drugs.

Abbott-Roy made his initial court appearance on the charge Thursday in Dover-Foxcroft District Court. His bail was set at $500 cash. He is being held at the Piscataquis County Jail.

Mitchell furnished his $500 cash bail in Greenville and was released.

Greenville Police Chief Jeff Pomerleau said his department had been made aware of drug dealing that occurred in the downtown business area, not far from the school.

During the execution of the search warrant at 16 Pritham Ave., Greenville police said they found drug paraphernalia, marijuana and possibly Vicodin.
