Two Lagrange men have been charged with aggravated trafficking of scheduled drugs after they were arrested Monday in Waterville, the Maine Drug Enforcement Agency said in a news release.

Lloyd MacFarlane Jr., 24, and his father, Lloyd MacFarlane Sr., 55, were traveling south Monday on Interstate 95 in Waterville when Waterville police stopped their 2008 Chevy Silverado pickup truck, agency Commander Darrell Crandall said.

A search of the vehicle found more than 400 30-milligram Oxycodone tablets that were intended to be resold, Crandall said.

Drug enforcement agents then searched the home the men share on Medford Road in Lagrange and seized additional Oxycodone, 11 firearms and about $30,000 in cash, which authorities believe to have come from drug sales. The street value of the drugs found at the home and in the vehicle amounts to more than $15,000.

In addition to the drugs, weapons and money, agents seized the men’s truck and will seek criminal forfeiture of the vehicle.

Both men remain in the Kennebec County jail in Augusta and were scheduled to make their first court appearance Wednesday in Augusta.
