A Waldoboro man is in jail today pending charges of drug trafficking after police found 21 pounds of marijuana, worth $42,000, in his car.

Agents with the Maine Drug Enforcement Agency and other police agencies had been keeping watch on Christopher Luce, 24, owner of a combination shoe store and head shop, which sells drug paraphernalia

Luce was suspected of selling large amounts of marijuana from his home and business, The Shoe Box in Waldoboro.

Police say they learned that Luce was expected to have a large amount of pot and on Thursday they approached his sport utility vehicle as it was parked at a convenience store in Union. Police say Luce ran into the woods and they could not find him.

This morning Luce turned himself in and he is being held in Knox County Jail pending an initial appearance later this week.
