LEWISTON — A 64-year-old Lisbon Falls woman pleaded not guilty Wednesday to charges of aggravated trafficking in cocaine, violating bail conditions and criminal forfeiture of property.

Lana Raubeson of 42 Edgecomb Road was indicted by an Androscoggin County grand jury in October. She entered her plea in the Lewiston Unified Court before Judge Rick Lawrence.

She was arrested by Maine State Police Trooper Adam Fillebrown at her home on Aug. 18 when Fillebrown was conducting a bail condition check on an unrelated case. He saw Raubeson attempt to throw a bag from the window. The bag contained 81 grams of cocaine, along with the cutting agent, according to Maine Department of Public Safety spokesman Stephen McCausland.

Police also found $11,150 in cash in the home.

Raubeson was arrested and later released on bail.

The trafficking charge is punishable by up to 10 years in jail and $20,000 in fines.

She is being represented by attorney Leonard Sharon.
