Bruce Rubin, 55, of 36 Ocean Boulevard was arraigned Thursday in Plaistow District Court after he was arrested Wednesday by sheriff's deputies following an investigation.
He is charged with two counts of sale of a controlled drug for allegedly selling pills on March 2 and 29 to the confidential source who was being monitored by investigators.
Rubin was the target of a three month investigation by the sheriff department's Drug Task Force.
He was arrested at 9 Circuit Drive in Kingston on Wednesday with assistance from Kingston and Plaistow police officers and the Drug Enforcement Administration.
According to court documents, the confidential source working with investigators made plans to meet up with Rubin on Dec. 4 at a 7-11 store on Crystal Avenue in Derry.
Kingston police Det. Joel Johnson said in a sworn affidavit that he met with the source after the transaction and was handed, "23 pink pills which were believed to be 10mg oxycodone in a ripped pharmacy bag."
The source told investigators that Rubin had agreed to sell him 25 pills, not 23, according to Johnson. During a recorded phone conversation about the shortage of pills, Rubin wanted to change the price of his pills to $10 each from $8.
"Rubin responded to the (confidential source) with 'Whatever!' implying that he was aware that he shorted the CS the pills," Johnson said in the affidavit.
Rubin added that he could "get 12 to 13 dollars a piece for the pills," the affidavit said.
Another purchase was arranged in front of a CVS store in Plaistow on March 2. Rubin filled his prescription of 140 pills in the store and sold 30 of the pills to the confidential source, according to Johnson.
Rubin had his prescription filled again at the same store on March 29, and again sold 30 pills to the source, Johnson said.
Rubin is due back in circuit court for a probable cause hearing on May 13.
