SHERMAN — Following a traffic stop on I-95 Tuesday, a New Hampshire man was arrested and charged with felony drug trafficking offenses.

The Maine Drug Enforcement Agency’s Aroostook County Task Force had received information about a vehicle traveling from Massachusetts to Aroostook County with illegal narcotics.

Agents identified the driver as 34-year-old Timothy Pinkham of Somersworth, New Hampshire, and found that his license was suspended.

With assistance from the Maine State Police, agents located Pinkham’s vehicle on I-95 North.

A State Trooper initiated a traffic stop in Sherman, during which Pinkham attempted to dispose of suspected fentanyl.

A subsequent search of the vehicle by agents and the Trooper yielded over 1300 grams (2.8 pounds) of methamphetamine and more than 3.5 grams of fentanyl.

A locked container in the vehicle, later opened with a search warrant, contained an additional 441 grams of methamphetamine, totaling over 3.8 pounds with an estimated street value of over $150,000.

Pinkham was charged with Class A Aggravated Trafficking of Scheduled W Drugs, two counts of Unlawful Furnishing Schedule W Drugs, two counts of Unlawful Possession of Schedule W Drugs, and Operating without a License.

He was taken to the Aroostook County Jail, with bail set at $75,000 cash.

The Aroostook County Sheriff’s Office also assisted with the stop.
