A 19-year-old Rockland woman was arrested April 11 and charged with dealing Ecstasy.

Sadie Knight was arrested for Class B trafficking in Ecstasy, according to a news release issued by the Maine Drug Enforcement Agency and the Rockland Police Department.

A police affidavit filed in Sixth District Court in Rockland said that a concerned citizen contacted Rockland police about Knight, who was referred to as a transient staying in Rockland. The citizen said Knight was one of several dealers selling large amounts of Ecstasy in the Camden Street area.

Later, a confidential informant also told police that Knight was selling. The informant contacted police when Knight was leaving a residence with the drugs.

Officer William Smith followed the vehicle that Knight was a passenger in and it soon pulled into the parking lot of the C.N. Brown station on Main Street, according to the affidavit. The officer approached the vehicle and saw Knight shoving something down her pants. Smith asked Knight and the driver of the vehicle to show their hands but she continued to shove things into her pants. The officer then saw her holding a large amount of cash.

When asked what she was hiding, she pulled out a condom containing 63 Ecstasy tablets, the affidavit said. More than $300 was also found on her. A search of the vehicle uncovered an unloaded .22 caliber handgun that was hidden behind a seat in the vehicle.

Knight was arrested and transported to the Knox County Jail. She was still in custody the morning of April 12 and her bail was set at $2,500 cash. She was scheduled to make her initial court appearance later April 12.
