BURLINGTON, Vt. (AP) - Authorities say a selectman from a small town in northern Vermont is facing a felony drug distribution charge in federal court.

The Burlington Free Press quotes U.S. Attorney Eric Miller (https://bfpne.ws/1Ww83So ) as saying he expects 57-year-old Bernard Savage Sr. of Alburgh will appear in federal court Monday on a charge of distribution of cocaine.

Savage’s home and business were raided last month by state and federal drug investigators.

Miller says he believes Savage was taken into custody at the Northwestern Medical Center in St. Albans and jailed at the Chittenden Regional Correctional Center Friday. The hospital reported to police that Savage was admitted Thursday night with a self-inflicted gunshot wound to the hand.

The Free Press reports that efforts to reach Savage were unsuccessful.

Savage was elected in March 2014.
