For the past year, agents from the MDEA Mid-Coast District Task Force and the Lincoln County Sheriff’s Office were investigating the sale of oxycodone pills by Day and her daughter. Day regularly traveled out of state to purchase large amounts of oxycodone then returned to her home in Jefferson where she and her daughter would sell hundreds of the pills to customers in Lincoln and Knox Counties each week, according to the MDEA.

The average price per pill was $30. Neither of the women had a prescription for the drug. Thursday morning Drug agents searched Day’s home on Route 32 in Jefferson. Seized from the residence were 350 30-milligram oxycodone pills, four firearms including a loaded 9-millimeter handgun, and $13,000 in suspected drug proceeds.

The approximate street value of the seized oxycodone is $10,500. Day and Reynolds were arrested at the residence without incident as well as Lee of Waldoboro who was suspected of just purchasing some the pills from the home.

All three were taken to Two Bridges Regional Jail in Wiscasset where bail was set for Day and Reynolds at $1,000 cash. Lee’s bail was set at $500. Also assisting in the investigation were the Knox County Sheriff’s Office, Rockland Police and the Maine Warden Service.
