SKOWHEGAN, Maine — A New York man is behind bars after a drug search warrant netted 50 oxycodone pills on Tuesday, according to Somerset County Sheriff’s Department Detective Lt. Carl E. Gottardi II.

At about 4:30 p.m. Tuesday, six members of the Somerset County Sheriff’s Department executed a drug search warrant on a man and vehicle along U.S. Route 2 in Skowhegan, said Gottardi in a statement Wednesday.

Terrance Allen, 27, of Bronx, N.Y., was arrested and charged with Class B trafficking in a schedule W drug, Class C possession of a schedule W drug and violation of conditions of release, a misdemeanor.

Fifty oxycodone pills with a street value of $1,750 were seized along with documentation and more than $1,100 in cash, said Gottardi.

Allen was out on bail at the time for a criminal motor vehicle matter in Maine, Gottardi said.

Allen was taken to Somerset County Jail in Madison, where he remained Wednesday afternoon.

Gottardi said the Somerset County district attorney’s office will review the case to see if there may be additional charges.

Staff Sgt. Michael Knight and Deputies Jeremy Leal, Dave Cole and William Quigley assisted Gottardi on the execution of the search warrant.
