Old Orchard Beach police and Maine Drug Enforcement agents executed a search warrant Thurday afternoon at the 925 Silver Shop on Old Orchard Avenue. They arrested Peter Mesak, 28, of Newburyport, Massachusetts. He is charged with two counts of aggravated trafficking in marijuana, which are Class C felonies.

“The search and arrest were a result of an ongoing investigation regarding reports of marijuana being sold illegally over the counter from the business to adults and minors,” police said in a press release.

The investigation is ongoing, and additional charges are anticipated. Mesak is held on $15,000 bail.
