Warren man who allegedly stole more than $1,000 from state among Knox County indictments

By Stephen Betts, BDN Staff

ROCKLAND, Maine — Three Knox County grand jury indictments that had been kept secret for 10 days to give police time to make some arrests were unsealed Monday.

Only one of the suspects in the three cases, however, was apprehended before the documents were unsealed.

Kyle MacDougal, 34, of Warren, who was indicted on a charge of theft by deception, was apprehended on July 13 and since has been released on bail. The indictment alleges that he stole more than $1,000 from the state from March through August 2008. The indictment does not specify what was stolen, but states that the officer handling the case works for the Maine Department of Labor.

Assistant District Attorney Jeff Baroody said Monday afternoon that he was declining further comment on the case.

Arrest warrants were still outstanding early Monday for two people involved in the other secret indictments that were unsealed.

Michael E. Wiley, 32, of Rockland was indicted on a count of Class A aggravated trafficking in heroin in March in Rockland and a charge of Class B trafficking in cocaine in Rockland in January in Rockland. The aggravated charge was the result of the drug transaction occurring within 1,000 feet of a school or drug-free safe zone.

Rebecca B. Buckner, 45, of Okeechobee, Fla., was indicted on a charge of negotiating a worthless instrument. The indictment alleges she wrote three checks in Rockland totaling $1,500 knowing there was not sufficient funds to cover them.
