Four people were charged for drug possession after police were called to the Bath Shopping Center to investigate the report of someone seen with a syringe in the CVS parking lot last week.

The police received the complaint at 6 p.m. Thursday.

“We got a call that a female walked out of CVS (and got) into a van parked in the parking lot and was flicking a syringe,” said Bath Police Lt. Robert Savary. “The officer showed up and approached the vehicle, and could see them smoking a crack pipe inside.”

Police say they confiscated various contraband associated with drug use paraphernalia. Savary said a cocaine-based substance was found.

According to police, arrested and charged with the Class D crime of unlawful possession of a Schedule W drug were Lena Logan, 31, of Bath; James Lowry, 52, of Portland; and Jacques McQuillar, 54, of Portland. Logan was also charged with violation of conditions of release, a Class E misdemeanor. All three were taken to Two Bridges Regional Jail in Wiscasset.

Logan Betts, 26, of Brunswick, was charged with unlawful possession of a Schedule W drug, a class C crime. She was released on personal recognizance, Savary said.

There would have been a threat to the public had a person under the influence driven the van away, Savary said, “and that was thwarted due to citizens’ calling, and police arriving before they left and discovering everything.”
