Updated 1 year ago

WATERVILLE, Maine (AP) – Waterville police say they found more than 600 oxycodone pills during a body cavity search of a New York City woman. Ebony Howard and alleged co-conspirator William Waters are scheduled to be arraigned Monday on drug trafficking charges following their weekend arrest. Police say they received a tip from a source that the pair would be in the Waterville area with drugs. Officers arrested them at a gas station just after midnight Saturday. Deputy Chief Charles Rumsey tells the Morning Sentinel (http://bit.ly/15Vng44 ) that after the arrest, the 28-year-old Howard was searched and police found 645 pills “packed into her body cavities.” Rumsey says the drugs have a street value of $20,000. It was not clear if Howard and Waters have lawyers. ___ Information from: Morning Sentinel, http://www.onlinesentinel.com/
