BRIDGTON — A 46-year-old Lovell woman was arrested Thursday on charges that she illegally sold prescription drugs near an elementary school earlier this year.

Connie M. Scott of Christian Hill Road was charged with one count of aggravated trafficking in Oxycodone and one count of trafficking in Oxycodone. Both charges stem from the same alleged drug sale, which took place in January within 1,000 feet of the Stevens Brook Elementary School, police said.

“It’s actually one sale, but there’s two chargeable offenses,” said Chief David Lyons of the Bridgton Police Department. “The first offense is for selling a drug, which puts it in the felony category. The second offense is for selling that same drug in a school zone.”

Oxycodone is a prescription painkiller. Lyons said Scott’s arrest, which followed her indictment on the charges by the Cumberland County grand jury, is part of an ongoing drug enforcement program.

“We’re committed to this significant problem, and we’re going to continue to move forward,” he said.

Scott was not at the Cumberland County Jail as of Friday afternoon.
