A Holden man was arrested Wednesday night on a felony drug possession charge after he reportedly agreed to let Bangor police officers search his pickup and they turned up four prescription painkillers.


As a result of the discovery, Justin Bowen, 23, was charged with possession of scheduled drugs, a Class C felony, Bangor police Lt. Jeff Millard said Thursday, citing police reports. Bowen, who was taken to Penobscot County Jail after his arrest, since has been released on bail, Millard said.


According to Millard, the episode that led to Bowen’s arrest began about 9:30 p.m. on Griffin Road, where a city police officer pulled Bowen over because of a faulty break light.


Bowen reportedly consented to a search of his Ford Ranger pickup truck and during that search, police officers found four hydrocodone pills in a bag that also contained Bowen’s driver’s license, Millard said. Bowen was unable to produce a prescription for the pills, Millard said.


Millard said two passengers in Bowen’s pickup at the time were not charged. (Dawn Gagnon, BDN)
