COPLIN PLANTATION -- Maine state troopers found drugs and drug paraphernalia in a Coplin Plantation residence after responding to a medical call Tuesday.
Trooper Aaron Turcotte went to the residence after receiving a call around 2 p.m. from one of the occupants who said there was a medical emergency in the small Franklin County plantation 30 miles south of the Canadian border.
After arriving at the residence, Turcotte reported seeing narcotics-related items.
Using a warrant, state troopers later found more than 3 pounds of marijuana, 1 ounce of powdered ecstasy, LSD, materials used for manufacturing LSD and several other prescription medications during a search of the apartment.
Acting Lt. Aaron Hayden said some substances taken during the search are unidentified and will be tested.
The three adult men who rent the building could face several drug charges, but no one was arrested and no charges have been filed yet, he said.
The case is still under investigation, he said.
