WATERVILLE — A local woman was summoned Thursday evening in connection with an alleged drug trafficking operation on Oak Street, police said.

Amber Frost, 24, of 23 Oak St., Apartment 4, is charged with class C felony criminal conspiracy, Waterville police Chief Joseph Massey said Friday.

Earlier in the day Thursday, Waterville police arrested Edward Dawe, also 24, on charges of class B aggravated trafficking in scheduled drugs and two counts of class C trafficking in scheduled drugs.

The charges stemmed from a tip police received about four weeks ago that drugs were being sold from the apartment, Massey said.

During the execution of a search warrant Thursday, police seized 1.9 pounds of marijuana and $57,000 in cash hidden in the apartment and believed to be proceeds from drug sales. They also found bank documents indicating more money was being held in two accounts belonging to Frost, Massey said.

Dawe is a medical marijuana patient, and that entitles him to possess up to 2.5 ounces of marijuana legally for personal use. But the quantity found in the apartment vastly exceeded the legal amount, and that “obviously suggests he was selling it,” Massey said.

Frost was summonsed Thursday evening and was scheduled to appear Dec. 28 at Kennebec County Superior Court in Augusta. No further charges are expected in the case, Massey said.
