SMYRNA, Maine — The Maine Drug Enforcement Agency has charged another individual in connection with an alleged methamphetamine manufacturing operation in Smyrna.

Darrell Crandall, MDEA division commander, said Wednesday evening that Brian Sanford, 30, of Smyrna was arrested by Maine State Police troopers at his workplace in Oakfield on Friday.

Sanford was charged with trafficking in methamphetamine.

Agents allege that Sanford assisted Felisha Suitter in the process of making methamphetamine. Suitter, 32, was arrested after MDEA agents on Feb. 14 searched her home on the Timoney Lake Road in Smyrna. Agents and the team’s forensic chemist seized equipment, chemicals and other items used in the making of methamphetamine, as well as an unspecified amount of the finished product, according to Crandall.

Suitter was charged with aggravated trafficking in methamphetamine.

Sanford posted bail and is scheduled to appear in Aroostook County Superior Court on March 20.

If convicted of the Class B crime, Sanford faces up to 10 years in prison.
