FARMINGTON, Maine — Four Maine men have pleaded not guilty to felony marijuana trafficking and growing charges.

The four were arraigned Friday in Franklin County Superior Court. They were arrested in September after drug agents seized more than 40 pounds of harvested marijuana at a home in Industry and another 125 plants in a basement nearby. The Sun Journal reported that authorities say the street value of the drugs was $200,000.

Those arrested were 50-year-old Charles Correll, the homeowner; 56-year-old Robert Sirois of Farmington; 38-year-old Eric Hall of Industry; and 45-year-old Matthew Hemingway of Farmington.
