WATERVILLE — A city man was arrested Sunday on drug charges outside the Circle K and Irving gas station on Kennedy Memorial Drive after a witness called in about a disturbance between the man and a woman, police said.

While the woman wasn’t at the scene when police arrived, they did find Brian Miller, 36, of 54 Western Ave., Waterville. Police officers noticed Miller kept his hands in his pockets, said Deputy Chief Bill Bonney.

The officers allegedly searched Miller and found a pill bottle with Suboxone, for which Miller didn’t have a prescription. Suboxone is a narcotic used to treat addiction.

Police also allegedly found in the trash a spoon covered in Ritalin, a stimulant used to treat ADHD, and Miller allegedly confessed to discarding that before the authorities arrived, Bonney said.

Miller was charged with unlawful possession of a scheduled drug, a Class C felony. He has two prior drug offenses.

He made a cash bail of $250 along with a $60 bail commissioner’s fee.
