PRESQUE ISLE — State and local police arrested a Presque Isle mother and her son charged with numerous drug-related offenses.
According to a statement from a Maine Drug Enforcement Agency commander, 44-year-old Leann Johnson and her son, 23-year-old Jeremiah Therrien, were arrested Monday after a months-long investigation.
The MDEA supervisor said undercover drug agents completed several methamphetamine purchases during the investigation.
On Monday, agents searched Johnson’s home on Dyer Street and seized more than four pounds of crystal meth and nearly $10,000 in suspected proceeds from drug sales. The MDEA estimated the street value of drugs at more than $250,000.
Johnson and Therrien were charged with selling meth, while Therrien also was charged with bail violations.
Both were taken to the Aroostook County jail after being arrested. Johnson was able to post bail, but because Therrien allegedly was violating existing bail conditions he was denied bail.
The MDEA supervisor said additional arrests in connection with this case are expected.
