LEWISTON, Maine (AP) _ Maine drug police have arrested a Lewiston couple after a search of their apartment and vehicle yielded almost 500 prescription pills and more than $3,500 in counterfeit U.S. currency.

The Maine Drug Enforcement Agency says 39-year-old Jermaine Johnson and 43-year-old Michelle Grimmo were arrested this week on prescription drug trafficking charges.

Police say Johnson was in possession of 121 oxycodone pills when he was arrested in Sabattus.

The Sun Journal reports that a search warrant executed on their apartment yielded $20,000 in cash and 471 oxycodone pills with a street value of up to $20,000.

The counterfeit money as well as a handgun were found in Johnson's vehicle.

They are being held on bail. It was not clear if they had lawyers.
