Bangor, Maine: United States Attorney Thomas E. Delahanty II announced that Michelle
L. Wilcox, 28, of East Central Franklin, was sentenced today in U.S. District Court in Bangor to
51 months in prison and three years of supervised release for robbing the Western Maine
Pharmacy in Kingfield, Maine. She was also ordered to pay $1,153 in restitution. She pled
guilty to the crime on October 18, 2013.

Court records reveal that on June 3, 2013, the defendant, wearing a gray hooded
sweatshirt and sunglasses, entered the pharmacy and passed a note to a technician demanding all
of the Suboxone strips and stating that she had “a weapon and will use it.” She absconded with
85 8mg Suboxone strips. A Franklin County Deputy Sheriff identified the defendant from
detailed witness descriptions and review of a surveillance video. Within hours of the robbery,
the defendant was arrested and confessed.

The investigation was conducted by the Federal Bureau of Investigation, the Franklin
County Sheriff’s Department and the Maine State Police.
