A 19-year-old is facing an elevated drug charge after police say they caught the man selling a bag of marijuana in a school parking lot.

At about 9:30 p.m. March 27, Stockton Springs Police Department received a complaint of suspicious vehicles parked at the Stockton Springs Elementary School.

Stockton Officer Damien Stone responded and located two vehicles. After making contact with the occupants of both vehicles, Stone requested that Waldo County Sheriff’s Detective Merl Reed respond with K-9 Neva.

Neva allegedly found drugs hidden in the dashboard of one of the vehicles, which led Reed and Stone to arrest Brad Swift of Stockton Springs for aggravated trafficking in scheduled drugs, which is a Class C felony, according to a press release from the Waldo County Sheriff’s Office.

The charge is elevated from a misdemeanor to a felony because the trafficking took place in a school zone, according Lt. Jason Trundy.

Stockton Police summoned the operator of the other vehicle, Ethan Patterson, 19, of Stockton Springs for possession of a usable amount of marijuana and possession of drug paraphernalia.
