Police say a man who is on probation racked up a few new charges this week after a traffic stop led to a search of his home and the eventual discovery of several kinds of drugs, drug paraphernalia and evidence of alcohol use.

Michael Brillard, 27, of Thorndike, was arrested on a probation hold and was additionally charged with falsifying physical evidence, possession of schedule Z drugs and sale and use of drug paraphernalia following a series of incidents that reportedly occurred Monday, Feb. 25.

Lt. Jason Trundy of the Waldo County Sherriff's Office said Deputy Jordan Tozier executed a traffic stop after he saw a blue pickup truck run a stop sign on Gordon Hill Road in Thorndike and continue on at a high rate of speed, Trundy said.

After stopping the vehicle, Tozier discovered the passenger — who was identified as Brillard — was on probation. Tozier also learned that Brillard was subject to random searches for drugs, alcohol and dangerous weapons.

While searching Brillard's wallet, Trundy said, the officer found a razor blade, which Brillard told Tozier was something he "used to use for drugs back in the day."

The razor had some kind of residue on it, said Trundy, and Tozier also located a box cutter and several pieces of tin foil behind the seats in the truck, as well as what the officer identified as a container with liquid that appeared to be alcohol.

Tozier went on to search Brillard's residence, which, Trundy said, was a short distance away from where Tozier had stopped the vehicle.

"When they arrived at the residence, there were two people inside," said Tozier.

The two males initially left the residence, but, Trundy said, Tozier asked Brillard to call one of the men, 23-year-old Derek Keller, of Freedom, back to the home after the officer located several types of drugs in various containers in the fresh snow just outside the house.

Inside the home Tozier located a few beer caps, a glass beer bottle and prescription pill bottles, and outside on the lawn, Trundy said, the officer found a tin containing pills that were identified as Cymbalta and Lamictal. One of the prescription pill bottles was labeled as oxycodone, but further investigation revealed that the bottle actually contained amitriptyline.

A search of the rear of the residence resulted in Tozier's discovery of a second plastic container, which, Trundy said, contained four needles, a spoon with burn marks on it, a pen tube with unknown residue inside it, a pipe with marijuana residue, as well as a .22 caliber bullet.

When Tozier asked Brillard what tests would reveal about what the needles were used for, Brillard reportedly stated that the smaller needles were likely used for cocaine, while the remaining two were used for oxycodone. When the officer asked Brillard how the container got outside, Trundy said, Brillard stated he threw it outside when he thought the officer wasn't looking.

When Tozier questioned Keller, Keller said his younger brother called him to warn him the police were coming to the residence prior to Tozier's arrival and he threw everything he thought might have contained drugs or paraphernalia out the windows.

After continuing his search of the home, Trundy said, Tozier found a coffee cup that contained some kind of alcoholic beverage, and an M-80 firework.

In addition to the charges levied against Brillard, Keller was charged with falsifying physical evidence.

Additional charges are pending the results of tests on the needles, the spoon and the pen tube, Trundy said.

Brillard is scheduled to appear in court Tuesday, June 4.
