A man and the woman that he lives with had been engaged in an argument in their Waterville, Maine, apartment on Thursday evening. Near 9:00 p.m., someone notified the authorities about the commotion and police dispatched to the scene.

Upon arrival, Waterville officers spoke with the pair and they confirmed that they had been quarreling, but their demeanor caused the police to believe that something else did not appear quite right. When they asked if they could inspect the premises, the residents gave the officers consent and allowed them access to the apartment.

When police were in the process of exploring the interior of the apartment they came upon a closet door and when they opened it they allegedly found a man hiding inside.

From July 2011 through July 2014 a Lynwood physician allegedly prescribed narcotic prescriptions in large amounts and accepted cash payments for the transactions. The patients receiving the medication did not receive regular examinations and it is suspected that many of them did not have a medical need for the pills. He is accused of using his practice to make illegal drug deals.

Dr. Edward Ridgill has been accused of prescribing and selling considerable amounts of Norco, Xanax and Soma pills, which are dubbed the “trinity” by drug users due to the high achieved by consuming the opiate, sedative and muscle relaxer at the same time. It is reported that he handed out over 21,000 prescriptions during a three year period.

A DEA task force began an investigation on Ridgill employing anonymous sources who made appointments with the doctor and were fitted with surveillance cameras hidden inside of cups, buttons, hats and purses prior to their visits. The collected videos depicted the visits of the undercover mock patients where Ridgill prescribed and accepted cash payment for the drugs, and in some cases no examination was performed. Expert review of the videos and patient files raised enough suspicion to warrant charging 65-year-old Ridgill with several counts of illegal distribution.
