Lubec man in court on multiple drug charges

MACHIAS – A 52-year-old Lubec man, who faces multiple drug charges, made his first appearance in Washington County Superior Court Monday.

Toby L. Wilcox, who was indicted by the Washington County grand jury earlier this month, entered not guilty pleas to aggravated trafficking in scheduled drugs, unlawful trafficking of scheduled drugs, aggravated unlawful furnishing of scheduled drugs and eight counts of unlawful possession of scheduled drugs as a result of a Sept. 7 incident.

Among the drugs that it is alleged Wilcox possessed was oxycodone, hydrocodone, Suboxone, oxaprozin, Effexor, alprazolam, trazodone and chlorzoxozone.

Wilcox also entered not guilty pleas to unlawful possession of oxycodone as a result of an Oct. 3 incident and two counts of violation of condition of release.

The Lubec man also faces one count of criminal forfeiture of property in the amount of $273 and the criminal forfeiture of numerous guns, including a Smith and Wesson .22-caliber handgun, a Browning .22-caliber handgun, a Beretta .22-caliber handgun, a Winchester .351-caliber rifle, a Savage 30-30 rifle, a Remington 12-gauge shotgun, a Browning .270-caliber rifle, a Springfield 20-gauge shotgun, a Winchester .300-caliber rifle, a Sears .22-caliber model 41 rifle with no serial number and a Winchester 12-gauge single-shot shotgun.

He was represented in court by Donald Brown of Brewer.

Wilcox was out on bail as a result of the Sept. 22 incident, when a confidential informant, working with the Maine Drug Enforcement Agency, allegedly purchased some oxycodone from Wilcox for $20.

On Oct. 3, Deputy Travis Willey of the Washington County Sheriff’s Department did a bail check at Wilcox’s residence. During that check, Willey found that Wilcox had marijuana paraphernalia.

“[And] a white plate with white powder on it that [Wilcox] said he snorts his prescription medication on using a straw. [Wilcox] says that this makes it work better,” an affidavit on file with the court said.

Wilcox was arrested and tested positive for drugs including oxycodone and opiates, the court documents said.

Brown filed a motion with the court asking that copies of all the evidence be made available to him.

Justice E. Allen Hunter said he would address motions relating to the case at a later date.
