VEAZIE — The Maine Drug Enforcement Agency says two men are in custody following an investigation into the illegal sale of prescription drugs.

Police say 26-year-old Jamie Boyd and 27-year-old Shawn Bryant, both of Veazie, were arrested early today after the car they were in was stopped on Interstate 95.

Investigators found almost 600 drug tablets in the car and at their Veazie home.

The investigation began after police began receiving complaints the two were selling drugs.

On Tuesday police followed their vehicle to southern New England and back. Drug agents had State Police stop the car in Carmel and they searched Boyd, Bryant and the car. Police later searched their home and seized more drugs and a shotgun.

The two are being held at the Penobscot County Jail.
