MACHIAS, Maine — A Roque Bluffs man was arrested Wednesday after police executed a search warrant at his home and confiscated marijuana, a rifle and nearly $13,000 in cash, according to the Washington County Sheriff’s Office.

Shaun Moody, 27, was arrested for aggravated trafficking in drugs and taken to the Washington County Jail, where bail was set at $750, according to Sheriff Donnie Smith.

Police seized 30 marijuana plants, eight of them in an indoor growing operation; 321 grams of processed marijuana; a rifle and $12,788 in cash, Smith said in a press release.

The sheriff reported that a joint investigation into Moody’s activities led to the search warrant being executed for 66 Duck Cove Road in Roque Bluffs by members of his office, the Maine Drug Enforcement Agency and the Maine State Police. The trafficking charge was elevated to aggravated because of the presence of a gun at the home, according to Smith.

Moody is scheduled to appear Dec. 27 in Machias Superior Court.

The case remains under investigation, Smith said.
