Probation Check Leads To Pair Of Arrests In Addison - Feb. 21, 2013
A probation check at an Addison residence resulted in the arrests of two men -- but not the man police came to check on.
On Wednesday, deputies from the Washington County Sheriff's Office went to the residence on the East Side road to conduct a probation check after receiving several complaints about alleged drug activity.
When the deputies arrived they discovered the two other men at the home.
According to the Sheriff's office, an investigation found that Byron Carver, 33, of Jonesport, was in possession of heroin and he was taken into custody.
Deputies also allegedly found several dosage units or "bags" of heroin packaged ready for sale. Clayton May, 41, of Addison was also taken into custody for trafficking of heroin.
The man that the deputies initially came to see was found not to be directly involved with the drug operation although the investigation remains ongoing.
Deputies seized approximately $11,000 in heroin, a small amount of marijuana and approximately $400 in cash. The Sheriff's Office K-9 Stryker was utilized in locating the heroin and marijuana and the Maine Drug Enforcement Agency also assisted at the scene.
Police said Carver is free on bail with several conditions. May remains at the Washington County Jail.
