SKOWHEGAN — Two of the five individuals who were arrested on drug charges in December have been indicted by the Somerset County Grand Jury.

On Dec. 17, 2019, two search warrants were served at two apartments at Indian Ridge Apartments in Skowhegan as part of a criminal investigation after the Skowhegan Police Department received complaints about narcotics trafficking at the apartments.

Five were arrested at the scene. Of the five, Schiavone Morton, 37, of New York, New York, and Kacey Davis, 33, of Skowhegan were indicted.

Both are being charged with one count of aggravated trafficking of scheduled drugs and one count of criminal forfeiture.

Maine State Police officers recovered more than 15 grams of crack cocaine, 6 grams of heroin and $5,700 in cash at the scene.

An indictment is not a finding of guilt, but an indication that there is enough evidence to move forward with a trial.
