ROCKLAND, Maine — A 28-year-old Rockland man sentenced last year to four years in jail for dealing in drugs remains at large after failing to report to jail.

Michael Rainville was convicted in August of two counts of trafficking in oxycodone. He pleaded guilty to selling the drugs in Rockport in December 2010 and January 2011.

He was sentenced to four years in prison, but he was allowed to report to jail on Sept. 12. He failed to report and on Nov. 15 a warrant was issued for his arrest for failure to appear.

Rainville is 5 feet, 7 inches tall, weighs 210 pounds and has blue eyes and brown hair.

Knox County Sheriff Donna Dennison said there are a number of warrants active for people for failure to appear, failure to pay fines or bail violations.

Last week, a warrant was issued for the arrest of 57-year-old Camden businessman Edward Tosswill when he failed to report June 1 to jail after being convicted in March of trafficking in cocaine.

Tosswill was arrested in Augusta on Friday and was at the Kennebec County Jail in Augusta on Friday evening, the jail reported.

The sheriff said she plans to begin issuing regular reports soon on some of the most wanted people who are being sought by police.
