RICHMOND — A local man is facing trafficking charges after drug agents allegedly turned up illegal prescription drugs and cash at his home.

David Beckwith, 55, was arrested this week and charged with trafficking in Oxycodone, Maine Drug Enforcement Agency Supervisor James Pease said in a release.

Beckwith subsequently bailed from Two Bridges Regional Jail in Wiscasset. He is expected to appear in court April 10 in West Bath.

MDEA as well as police from Richmond and Sagadahoc and Lincoln counties searched Beckwith’s home on Tuesday and seized 102 morphine tablets, 118 Oxycodone 15 and 30 milligram pills and about two grams of cocaine, Pease said.

“The search warrant was a result of a year-long investigation into Beckwith selling Oxycodone…and morphine to residents of Sagadahoc and Lincoln counties,” Pease said.

The search uncovered other evidence of drug trafficking and about $4,300 in cash.

“During the investigation we found that most of the pills being sold by Beckwith were coming from a Massachusetts supplier,” Pease said.
