The Maine Drug Enforcement Agency has arrested a mother and daughter from Lincoln County and charged them with selling thousands of Oxycodone pills in Lincoln and Knox counties over the past year.

Arrested Thursday, Oct. 26,  were Carol Day, 69, of Jefferson and her daughter Kimberly Reynolds ,53, of Waldoboro , both charged with Aggravated Trafficking in Schedule W Drugs (Oxycodone) Class A.  Also arrested was Clyde Lee, 38, of Waldoboro for Possession of Schedule W Drugs (Oxycodone) Class D.

For the past year, agents from the MDEA Mid-Coast District Task Force and the Lincoln County Sheriff’s Office were investigating the alleged sale of Oxycodone pills by Day and Reynolds. Day regularly traveled out of state, allegedly to purchase large amounts of Oxycodone then return to her home in Jefferson where she and Reynolds would allegedly sell hundreds of the pills to customers in Lincoln and Knox Counties each week . The average price per pill was $30.  Neither of the women had a prescription for the drug.

Thursday morning, Oct. 26, drug agents searched Day’s home on Route 32 in Jefferson. Seized from the home were 350, 30mg Oxycodone pills, four firearms including a loaded 9mm handgun, and $13,000 in suspected drug proceeds. The approximate street value of the seized Oxycodone is $10,500.

Day and Reynolds were arrested at the home without incident as well as Lee, who was suspected of purchasing some of the pills from the home.

All three were transported to Two Bridges Regional Jail in Wiscasset where bail was set for Day and Reynolds at $1000 cash. Lee’s bail was set at $500.

Also assisting in the investigation were the Knox County Sheriff’s Office, Rockland police and the Maine Warden Service.
