ROCKLAND, Maine (AP) _ Maine drug agents say they have arrested two men who have been selling oxycodone pills in Lincoln and Knox counties for months.

Police on Tuesday arrested 33-year-old Andrew Goupil of Wiscasset, and 68-year-old Joseph Dupaw of Dresden, as they were about to board a ferry to Vinalhaven.

Agents also seized 200 oxycodone pills worth an estimated $7,000 and more than $1,500 in cash at the time of the arrests.

Goupil, who has prior drug convictions, is facing a charge of aggravated trafficking. Dupaw is charged with trafficking and violating bail conditions from a recent assault arrest. They are being held at the Knox County jail. It was not clear whether they had lawyers.

Police say the pair had been under investigation for several months.
