Drug agents and Maine State Police troopers on Monday night arrested two Dayton residents on charges of possessing methamphetamine.

The Maine Drug Enforcement Agency charged Richard C. Tozier, 56, and Amy Reynolds, 47, with possessing methamphetamine, a felony, and violating conditions of release, a misdemeanor.

Acting on a tip that Tozier was making methamphetamine, agents searched his house and found about 2 grams of the drug. In a shed on the property, police found items used in making meth but there was no current drug-making operation, police said.

Tozier was arrested four years ago in connection with a pharmacy robbery in York County. Reynolds was also arrested on two charges of failing to appear in court.

Agents also plan to seek charges against the people who provided pseudoephedrine, the cold medicine which is a necessary ingredient. People are only allowed to buy a limited amount of the medicine and so makers of the drug often enlist the aid of others to buy the material.
