RANGELEY – A Rangeley man was being held Sunday on $10,000 cash bail at a Farmington jail after he and two others were charged Saturday when police discovered illegal drugs, cash and drug paraphernalia at a house on Route 4.

Rangeley police received some information last week that there was some drug activity going on at the residence, officer Brian Hughes said Saturday.

Police from that department and the U.S. Border Patrol, Franklin County Sheriff Department and Maine State Police, armed with a search warrant, searched the house at 5 a.m. Saturday and discovered the drugs: cocaine, marijuana and Ecstasy, Hughes said.

He declined to say how much of the drugs were found due to the ongoing investigation.

Arrested on charges of felony unlawful trafficking in scheduled drugs and misdemeanor possession of scheduled drugs were Joshua Brann, 19, and Sean Haley, 23, both of Rangeley and occupants of the house, the officer said.

Katie Webber, 18, of Rangeley, also an occupant of the house, was arrested and charged with misdemeanor possession of unlawful scheduled drugs, Hughes said.

Brann remained in jail Sunday, held in lieu of $10,000 cash bail, but Haley had posted $10,000 cash bail and Webber posted $1,000 cash bail on Saturday and were both released, a corrections’ officer said Sunday.

During the search, police seized three locked safes and State Trooper Randy Keaten requested and received a second search warrant to open them, Hughes said.

The safes were turned over to Hughes, who opened them and found Ecstasy pills, an undisclosed amount of money and drug paraphernalia including pipes, a tool used to snort crushed powder and other items to manufacture drugs, the officer said.

More charges are pending, Hughes said.

All three charged are scheduled to appear Oct. 12, at 12th District Court in Farmington. If Brann does not make the $10,000 cash bail to be released, he is expected to make an initial appearance Monday at court.
