The Maine Drug Enforcement Agency said Oct. 15 that seven Midcoast residents face marijuana charges after three houses were searched this week in Hope and Waldoboro.

On Oct. 13, MDEA, Knox Sheriff’s Office and Maine Game Wardens executed a search warrant at the residence of Joyce Marble, 62, Jared Hansen, 32,  and Holly Marble, 31 on Easy Lane in Hope.

The search came after an investigation found that a greenhouse and another building on the property were being used to grow marijuana. Drug agents seized 93 marijuana plants in various states of growth and one pound of processed marijuana. Much of the marijuana was packaged for resale and scales; suboxone and methadone were also seized, according to a press release from the Maine Department of Public Safety.

Agents also seized approximately two grams of hashish. Hansen was arrested and taken to Knox County Jail. He was charged with aggravated trafficking of marijuana, aggravated cultivation of marijuana and possession of methadone. These charges were aggravated due to a prior drug conviction from 1999 in Knox County.

Holly Marble was arrested and charged with trafficking marijuana and possession of methadone. She was also taken to the Knox County Jail. Joyce Marble was summoned for cultivation of marijuana .

On Oct. 15 , the Lincoln Sheriff’s Office, Waldoboro police, wardens and state police served a search warrant at the home of Scot Winchenbach, 51, and Linda Cronk, 47 of Old County Road in Waldoboro.

They seized 12 pounds of processed marijuana and 10 marijuana plants that had been harvested earlier in the day outdoors. Winchenbach was arrested and charged with felony possession of marijuana. Cronk was summoned at the scene for felony possession of marijuana. Winchenbach was taken to Two Bridges Regional Jail in Wiscasset.

Also on Oct. 15, agents conducted a bail check at the residence of Erik Cronk, 25, and Alissa Sprague, 28, also of Old County Road in Waldoboro. Agents on Sept. 30 had arrested both after seizing more than 10 pounds of marijuana and 30 marijuana plants at the house. Both were arrested on that date and were out on bail. The Oct. 15 search found another five pounds of marijuana and both were arrested again for violating their bail conditions. Cronk and Sprague were taken to the Two Bridges Regional Jail.
