SEARSPORT — Three people have been charged with importing and selling methamphetamine in Searsport as part of a multistate operation that involved mailing the drug.

Gerald Gustafson, 51, of Searsport, was charged with possession of methamphetamine, a Class C felony; and Thomas Reynolds, 50, of McDonald, Pennsylvania, and Marina Saravia, 54, of Golden Valley, Arizona, were charged with trafficking in methamphetamine, a Class B felony, according to a news release from the Maine Drug Enforcement Agency.

Police allege that Gustafson received methamphetamine shipments through the mail from Reynolds and Saravia.

Agents seized about 35 grams of crystal meth, with a street value of about $10,500 in the midcoast area, during the investigation.

Gustafson was arrested Sept. 26 and is being held without bail on a probation violation at Two Bridges Jail in Wiscasset.

Reynolds was arrested Nov. 27 in Pennsylvania and is being held in jail there as a fugitive from justice pending extradition proceedings to bring him to Maine.

Saravia was arrested Dec. 3 in Arizona and is being held there, also as a fugitive from justice pending extradition proceedings to bring her to Maine.

The MDEA conducted the investigation in Maine with officers from the Searsport Police Department.

The multistate investigation is continuing and additional charges are expected, according to the news release.
