HOLDEN, Maine — A Bangor woman was arrested on several drug charges last week after a Holden police officer was called to Shadow Lane to look into a report of suspicious activity.

Stacy Stevens, 33, also known as Deidra Toye, was charged with unlawful possession of bath salts, the prescription anti-anxiety drug clonazepam, a usable amount of marijuana and drug paraphernalia, Holden police Sgt. Eugene Fizell said Tuesday.

Stevens was released on bail Monday after she appeared before a judge at the Penobscot Judicial Center, Fizell said.

The series of incidents that led to Stevens’ arrest began about 10 on Wednesday night of last week, Fizell said.

Officer Bruce Graybill, who handled the complaint, arrived at the residence just as Stevens was preparing to leave the home of a friend she had been visiting.

When the officer reached Stevens, he spotted a plastic bag containing white powder that later tested positive for bath salts inside of her car. A subsequent search turned up prescription drugs, for which she was unable to produce a prescription, as well as a small amount of marijuana and a pipe with which to smoke it.

In addition to the drugs, police confiscated a Taser designed to look like a flashlight which she had inside of her purse, Fizell said.

Graybill was assisted by Brewer police Officers Eduardo Benjamin and Thom Tardiff, Fizell said.
