A Searsport man was arrested over the weekend after police reportedly found drugs and cash in his car.

According to a press release from the Waldo County Sheriff’s Office, Deputy Arthur Smith stopped a vehicle on Route 1 in Searsport at around 8:15 p.m. on Feb. 18 for a vehicle defect.

The vehicle, according to police, was being operated by Stephen Loring, 25, of Searsport.

“Deputy Smith made observations that led him to believe the vehicle contained drugs and/or drug paraphernalia,” the press release stated.

A search conducted by Smith reportedly led to the seizure of more than 22 ounces of marijuana, five grams of a powdered substance believed to be Ecstasy and $3,300 in cash from Loring’s vehicle.

Loring was arrested, according to the press release, and charged with trafficking in schedule Z drugs (marijuana). Police report that additional charges are likely, pending further testing and investigation.
