JACKMAN, Maine — Police have charged a 38-year-old man after executing a search warrant at his home on Friday morning, according to Chief Deputy Dale Lancaster of the Somerset County Sheriff’s Office.

The search warrant was the result of an investigation since last summer regarding alleged drug activity at the home of Bryant Peck of Jackman, Lancaster said.

Led by Detective Lt. Carl Gottardi, the search turned up hydrocodone pills, Suboxone strips, cocaine, processed marijuana, drug paraphernalia and illegally possessed moose meat, Lancaster said.

Peck was arrested without incident and charged with two counts of possession of a Schedule W drug and trafficking in a Schedule W drug, Lancaster said.

Additional charges may be filed against Peck pending a review of the case by the district attorney’s office.

The seized moose meat will be investigated by the Maine Warden Service for potential fish and game violations.

Peck is being held at the Somerset County Jail. He is scheduled to appear in court on Monday.
