A teenager from Massachusetts could face up to 10 years in prison after a federal grand jury indicted him for possessing a gun while using drugs in Knox County earlier this year.

Trevor Teves, 19, of New Bedford, Mass., was arrested Thursday, Dec. 7, in Massachusetts. He had been indicted Oct. 18 for unlawful drug use while possessing a gun, but the charge was sealed until his arrest.

Teves was one of two men arrested March 15 in the parking lot of Town Line Market in Warren after police said the other man, Cameron Soto, 24, of Fairhaven, Mass., sold drugs in St. George to a confidential informant, according to an affidavit filed in court by the Maine Drug Enforcement Agency. Teves was charged with possession of a firearm by a prohibited person and released on bail at that time, according to a news release issued in March by the Maine Department of Public Safety.

The state firearm charge was dismissed Friday, Dec. 8, following his indictment by the federal grand jury.

Soto has previously been charged and is awaiting a federal trial on charges of distribution of fentanyl resulting in death, distribution of fentanyl, and being a felon in possession of a firearm.

According to a March affidavit filed in Knox County court by the MDEA, the Knox County Sheriff's Office responded to a residence on Ridge Road in St. George, where 48-year-old Edward Rogers died after injecting heroin or fentanyl.

Soto and Teves also had been staying at a nearby residence on Ridge Road, according to police and an investigation led to Soto's arrest for the death.
