A couple on probation for trafficking methamphetamines in Bath has been sentenced to jail time for a manufacturing operation in Northport.

The two were arrested at their home March 30 based on a tip given to police about possible illegal activity, according to previously published reports. James and Stacey Scheider were each charged with aggravated trafficking in methamphetamine, Class A, aggravated operation of a methamphetamine laboratory, Class A, and probation violations.

While at the residence, agents seized a “one pot” laboratory and other items used to make methamphetamine, Department of Public Safety spokesman Stephen McCausland said in a news release. The two were arrested while agents and state probation and parole officers were conducting a probation check at the residence.

The grand jury May 12 handed up indictments against James Arthur Scheider, 40, for aggravated unlawful operation of a methamphetamine laboratory and 37-year-old Stacey Scheider — identified by police at the time of her arrest as Stacey Dykes — also for aggravated unlawful operation of a methamphetamine laboratory.

According to previously published reports, Scheider and Dykes were on probation as part of their sentencing for trafficking in methamphetamine in their then-hometown of Bath in 2014, McCausland said. James Scheider was sentenced to five years in prison with all but 18 months suspended and three years of probation. Stacey Scheider was sentenced to three years in prison with all but nine months suspended and three years of probation, McCausland said.

On the Northport charges, James Scheider was convicted of aggravated operating of a methamphetamine laboratory, with a prior offense, and sentenced to the Department of Corrections for two years and six months; Stacey Scheider also was convicted on the same charges and sentenced to 30 months, according to documents at Waldo County Unified Court.
