WISCASSET | An Episcopal priest from Augusta and two inmates at Two Bridges Regional Jail in Wiscasset have been charged with bringing illegal prescription drugs into the jail, according to police. The Rev. Stephen Foote, 70, of Bremen allegedly smuggled the drug suboxone into the jail during the month …
An earlier version of this story incorrectly stated that the Rev. Stephen Foote of Bremen is accused of trying to get drugs into the jail on two occasions. He is only accused of trying to smuggle drugs in on one occasion, according to William Avantaggio, a Damariscotta-based attorney who is representing Foote. Avantaggio said his understanding of the case is that Foote is accused of trying to mail drugs into the jail, which were intercepted, rather than carry them into the jail, which is what had been previously reported. Lincoln County Sheriff’s Department Lt. Michael Murphy said Friday that his office has been investigating the scope of the smuggling allegations but that Foote is charged with only one attempt. Murphy would not discuss what method Foote allegedly used.
