BANGOR, Maine — A local woman wanted on a warrant wound up with a drug charge last week as the result of the Bangor Police Department’s ongoing investigation into local drug activity.

July Miller, 39, of Bangor was arrested on Oct. 23 after Bangor police Officer Taylor Bagley, who is assigned to the police department’s Special Enforcement Team, encountered her while investigating suspected drug activity in the Willow Street area.

When Bagley ran Miller’s name through a law enforcement database, he learned that Miller was wanted on a warrant and placed her under arrest. During a subsequent search, Bagley found two Concerta pills for which Miller did not have a prescription.

The drug is often used to treat attention deficit and hyperactivity disorder, according to the U.S. Food and Drug Administration.
