FRENCHVILLE, Maine — A Frenchville man accused of selling methamphetamine tablets has been arrested after a Maine Drug Enforcement Agency undercover operation.

Michael Fongemie, 20, was charged with aggravated trafficking in Schedule W drugs, according to Maine Department of Public Safety spokesman Stephen McCausland.

Last Friday agents with the MDEA working undercover purchased a quantity of the drug from Fongemie in Frenchville, McCausland said in statement released Monday afternoon.

Fongemie subsequently was arrested and a search turned up a loaded .32-caliber revolver and approximately 200 tablets containing methamphetamine with a street value of about $500, McCausland said. He added that MDEA agents believe the drugs originated out of state.

Fongemie was taken to the Aroostook County Jail in Houlton and is now free on a $20,000 bail.

The investigation continues and McCausland said more arrests are possible.

Anyone with information concerning this investigation may call the Aroostook County MDEA district field office in Houlton at 532-0501.
