ROCKLAND, Maine — A 55-year-old Camden man has been arrested and charged with trafficking cocaine in the midcoast area.

According to the Maine Drug Enforcement Agency, the arrest came after months of investigation against Edward Tosswill.

Tosswill is accused of selling cocaine to other drug dealers in Camden and Rockland, according to an MDEA press release issued Tuesday.

On July 7, police executed a search warrant at Tosswill’s Mechanic Street home in Camden and found 20 grams of cocaine, 49 5-milligram oxycodone pills and “$15,839 in cash that investigators believe is directly from drug sales,” the press release stated.

According to court documents filed with the Knox County Superior Court, Tosswill was arrested the same day. He was brought to Knox County Jail and, according to jail staff, left a few hours later.

His bail conditions stipulate that he must check in with Camden police three days a week and may not have alcohol, drugs or weapons.

He is scheduled for a court appearance at 8:30 a.m. Aug. 25.

Tosswill was charged with Class B trafficking. Class B crimes are punishable by up to 10 years in jail and a $20,000 fine.

More charges will be filed against Tosswill, according to the MDEA.
