OLD TOWN, Maine — An Old Town police officer charged a Medway man and an East Millinocket man with drug charges after looking into a complaint of suspicious activity about 9 a.m. last Thursday morning.

When the officer arrived, he found Ryan Petrin, 20, of Medway and 19-year-old Aaron Potvin of East Millinocket in a vehicle on Goldsmith Lane, a short street off Main Street, Old Town police Sgt. Scott Casey said late last week, citing an arrest report.

A subsequent search turned up evidence of drug activity, Casey said.

Petrin was arrested on drug possession charges after police found Xanax and a usable amount of marijuana on him, Casey said. Petrin was taken to Penobscot County Jail. He since has been released on bail.

Aaron Potvin, 19, of East Millinocket was issued a summons for possession of drug paraphernalia, Casey said.
