SMYRNA, Maine — Two Michigan men are behind bars at the Aroostook County jail on drug-related charges after their arrest Friday during a car stop along Interstate 95 in Smyrna, according to information released late Monday by the Maine Drug Enforcement Agency.

Peter Arno, MDEA commander, said agents from his agency arrested Ricci Wafford, 32, of Farmington, Mich., and Eric Martin, 41, of Walled Lake, Mich., after approximately 150 oxycodone tablets were discovered in their possession.

The pills, with a street value of around $12,000, were likely destined for distribution in Aroostook County, Arno said.

Both men were charged with Class B trafficking in Schedule W drugs and transported to the Aroostook County Jail in Houlton.

Bail has been set at $10,000 cash for Martin and $5,000 cash for Wafford.

The MDEA was assisted in the arrest by members of the Aroostook County Sheriff’s Department, the Maine State Police and Homeland Security Investigations.

“These arrests highlight the continued influence that out of state trafficking organizations are having on rural Maine,” Arno said in his release.
