MADISON, Maine — An Anson woman wound up behind bars on Thursday after police found cocaine, cash and drug paraphernalia on her and in her vehicle, according to Somerset County Sheriff’s Department Detective Lt. Carl Gottardi.

Stacey Carrigan, 40, of Anson was arrested after the sheriff’s department executed a drug search warrant of her vehicle on Thursday evening, Gottardi said Friday.

According to Gottardi, 17 grams of cocaine, digital scales, $850 in cash and drug-related paraphernalia were recovered by police. The cocaine was packaged in plastic bags, he said.

Carrigan was charged with trafficking in a schedule W drug and possession of a schedule W drug, both Class B offenses. More charges may come, Gottardi said in a statement.

Carrigan is being held at the Somerset County Correctional Facility in Madison, with initial bail set at $10,000 cash.

The investigation into Carrigan’s alleged sale cocaine in the Madison area had been going on for a few months, said Gottardi.

The sheriff department’s Gottardi, Cpl. Eugene Cole and Deputy David Cole, and Madison police Officers Toby Blodgett, Kevin Hartley and Ian Shalet executed the search.

Correction: An earlier version of this story contained an error. The Somerset County Sheriff’s Department executed a drug search warrant on Stacey Carrigan, 40, of Anson's vehicle, not her vehicle and her home.
