FARMINGTON — A New Sharon man is facing charges of furnishing four juveniles with marijuana, Franklin County Sheriff Scott Nichols Sr. said in a news release.

Maine State Police arrested Charles Ross, 34, on Wednesday on a warrant issued by the Franklin County Sheriff’s Department, Nichols said. The warrant resulted from an investigation by Deputy Nick Zecher, who received a complaint that Ross furnished marijuana to an underage female, he said.

Zecher issued Ross a summons charging aggravated furnishing of scheduled drugs. He is scheduled to appear in court March 12, Nichols said.

Zecher learned that three other juveniles admitted receiving marijuana from Ross. A warrant was issued for one felony charge of aggravated trafficking of scheduled drugs and two felony charges of aggravated furnishing scheduled drugs, Nichols said.
