ADDISON, Maine — Two men were arrested on drug charges Wednesday by Washington County sheriff’s deputies, who also seized $11,000 worth of heroin, a small quantity of marijuana and $400 in cash from a home in Addison.

Byron Carver, 33, of Jonesport was charged with possession of heroin. After deputies found small-dose quantities of heroin packaged for sale, Clayton May, 41, of Addison was arrested on a charge of trafficking in heroin, according to police.

The two men were arrested at the East Side Road home of Mark Stoddard, who was the subject of a probation check after the sheriff’s department received several complaints about suspected drug activity. The initial investigation determined that Stoddard was not directly involved in any drug operation, and he was not arrested at the scene, police said. The investigation continues.

Both Carver and May were taken to the Washington County Jail. Carver was subsequently released after posting cash bail of $1,000. May’s bail was set at $25,000, and he remained in custody Thursday morning.

The Washington County Sheriff’s Office drug-sniffing dog, Stryker, was used in locating the drugs seized. Also assisting at the scene was the Maine Drug Enforcement Agency.
