An Old Orchard Beach man faces charges of drug trafficking after a domestic dispute led police to seize seven pounds of marijuana worth more than $30,000.
Stanley Dunham is free on $5,000 bail after his arrest a week ago on the drug charges.
Police were called to 13 Ryefield Drive at 2:42 a.m. on Aug. 10 and were told that Dunham had just left in a black sport utility vehicle. Police stopped Dunham a short distance from the house and charged him with driving under the influence.
That stop led to a search warrants at the house and for the car, said Detective Corporal Jeff Reagan. Executing the search warrants later that day led to the marijuana, some of which was in the car, and to $7,000 in cash, he said.
Dunham was arrested on a warrant two days later. He was not charged in connection with the domestic dispute, Reagan said.
Dunham is scheduled to appear in court Oct. 29.
