WORLAND, Wyo. (AP) — A northern Wyoming man is facing 14 felony blackmail and drug charges after authorities say he badgered and bullied neighbors into giving him their pain medications over the course of a year.
The Northern Wyoming Daily news reports that Michael Scott Claycomb could face up to 20 years in prison each on the most serious drug delivery charges.
Charging documents say authorities were contacted by the manager of the apartment building where Claycomb lived after several residents said he’d bullied and threatened them for their Oxycodone pills.
Claycomb reportedly told a judge during an initial appearance Thursday that he was on disability for a back injury.
