RANGELEY – Police believe that occupants of a house on Route 4 were manufacturing crack cocaine, Chief Phil Weymouth said Tuesday.

Police had found a vile of cocaine, a sniffer of coke and five to eight pieces, maybe more, of crack cocaine rock, Ecstasy pills, scales, a cocaine cutter and a tool to manufacture drugs after police searched the home Saturday, the chief said.

“We found evidence of manufacturing crack cocaine,” Weymouth said.

The owner of the camp searched the area himself and found more drugs – of an ounce of cocaine – which he turned over to police Tuesday, Weymouth said.

Police arrested three people on drug charges Saturday after executing a search warrant at the home.

Arrested on charges of felony unlawful trafficking in scheduled drugs and misdemeanor possession of scheduled drugs Saturday were Joshua Brann, 19, and Sean Haley, 23, both living in Rangeley recently but formerly of Phillips, Weymouth said.

Katie Webber, 18, of Rangeley was charged with misdemeanor possession of unlawful drugs.

Haley posted $10,000 cash bail and Webber posted $1,000 cash bail Saturday to be released from jail. Brann, originally held on $10,000 cash bail, had the bail reduced to $500 after a Monday appearance in a South Paris court. He posted bail Monday.
