LUBEC, Maine — Three Lubec residents were arrested on Saturday after Washington County sheriff’s deputies executed search warrants that yielded seizure of hundreds of doses of the prescription drug alprazolam, weapons and cash.

One of those search warrants was executed in Lubec at a home at 138 North Lubec Road. Seized there were unprescribed prescription pills, firearms and cash.

Those arrested include Ashley Bragg, 23, of Lubec, who is charged with aggravated trafficking in Schedule Z drugs, a Class C crime. Also arrested was William Feltner, 28, of Lubec, who is charged with unlawful possession of Schedule W drugs, Class C, and Amanda Bragg, 25, of Lubec. Amanda Bragg is charged with unlawful possession of Schedule Z drugs, Class E.

Smith said Washington County deputies and agents with the U.S. Coast Guard Investigative Service have been investigating the illegal importation of prescription drugs into Lubec for several months.

All three were taken to the Washington County Jail in Machias.

Smith said that, pending further investigation, other arrests are possible.

The Maine State Police assisted in the execution of the search warrant in Lubec, Smith said.
