SMYRNA, Maine — A Smyrna woman who is also a registered sex offender was arrested and charged with aggravated trafficking in methamphetamine on Wednesday evening after the Maine Drug Enforcement Agency executed a search warrant at her home.
Darrell Crandall, MDEA division commander, said on Wednesday evening that Felisha Suitter, 32, was arrested after the agency began a search of her home on the Timoney Lake Road.
Crandall said that agents had been investigating reports of criminal drug activity at the location for some time and sought a search warrant on Wednesday morning.
Shortly after 2:00 p.m. MDEA agents, state troopers and Aroostook County Sheriff’s deputies arrived at the mobile home. Crandall said that Suitter attempted to flee through a rear entrance but was unsuccessful.
The search took several hours as team members in protective gear scoured the trailer and an outbuilding on the property. Agents and the team’s forensic chemist seized equipment, chemicals and other items used in the making of methamphetamine, as well as an unspecified amount of the finished product, according to Crandall.
The Department of Environmental Protection assisted at the scene, as did the Oakfield and Houlton fire departments.
The charge against Suitter was aggravated because she has a prior drug conviction. If convicted, Suitter faces a minimum four-year prison sentence.
Suitter was also convicted of gross sexual assault in 2006 for her role in a sexual threesome with her husband and a teenage girl. She served six months in jail for her part in the crime.
