    HOULTON, ME – Last Thursday, Jan. 24, William “Willie” Estabrook, 46, of Ludlow was sentenced in Aroostook County Superior Court on charges of trafficking in marijuana and possession of methamphetamine.
    On the charge of marijuana trafficking, Justice E. Allen Hunter sentenced Estabrook to four years in prison, with all but 18 months suspended. Upon his release, he will be on probation for two years. Estabrook was also ordered to pay a $5,000 fine. On the methamphetamine possession charge, Estabrook received four years in prison, with all but 18 months suspended. The sentences are to be served concurrently. He was ordered to begin his sentence immediately.
    On November 16, 2005, Special Agents of the Maine Drug Enforcement Agency (MDEA) executed a search warrant at Estabrook’s home on the Hemore Road in Ludlow. Agents seized unlawfully possessed prescription drugs, scales and methamphetamine. Agents also removed a safe from the home, after a police dog alerted to the presence of drugs inside. Estabrook refused to open the locked safe, so it was taken to the MDEA office.
    Agents obtained a second search warrant and opened the safe. Inside, agents found approximately 5.7 pounds of marijuana, records and more methamphetamine. The drugs were valued at more than $10,000.
    Estabrook was arrested and charged with Trafficking in Marijuana and Possession of Methamphetamine – both Class C felonies.
