ROCKLAND — The Knox County Sheriff’s Office and Maine Drug Enforcement Agency arrested Michael Goyette, 39, of Lewiston, Oct. 4 for trafficking in Schedule W drugs, according to a new release from Knox County Patrol Administrator Patrick Polky.

Goyette was arrested when he arrived at the Knox County Regional Airport in Owls Head.

He was taken to the Knox County Jail and has since been released on bail. His next court date is scheduled for Nov. 27.

Officers from the Rockland Police Department also assisted in the investigation.

The investigation is ongoing. If you have any information please contact the Knox County Sheriff’s Office or Maine Drug Enforcement Agency.
