BANGOR, Maine — A Caribou woman waived indictment and pleaded guilty Wednesday in U.S. District Court to possession with intent to distribute controlled substances.
Ebony Davis, 25, admitted earlier this year that from September 2009 until January of this year, she made regular bus trips to Detroit, Mich., where she purchased oxycodone pills for herself and another person, who was not named in court documents.
Davis was questioned on Jan. 22 by agents with the U.S. Drug Enforcement Administration after they learned from a confidential source she was scheduled that night to arrive in Bangor on a bus from Michigan.
Agent Fred Luce approached Davis after she got off the bus, according to the prosecution version of events to which she pleaded guilty. After Luce asked her where the pills were located, Davis pulled a red zippered bank envelope from her backpack and handed it to Luce.
Inside, he found 312 80-milligram oxycodone pills, according to the prosecution version. Davis told Luce that 125 of the pills were for her own use and the rest were for someone else.
Davis is being held without bail while awaiting sentencing. A sentencing date has not been set.
She faces up to 20 years in prison and a fine of up to $1 million. Under Davis’ plea agreement with federal prosecutors, she agreed not to appeal her sentence unless it is longer than four years.
