BANGOR, Maine: A man from Houlton was convicted in federal court today for conspiring to distribute methamphetamine, US Attorney Darcie N. McElwee said.
U.S. District Judge Lance E. Walker sentenced Hayden fogg, 35 years old, to 12 months and one day in prison and three years of supervised release. Fogg pleaded guilty on June 28, 2021.
According to court records, between May 2018 and July 2018, Fogg was part of a Florida-based drug distribution operation operating in northern Maine. A co-conspirator obtained large amounts of methamphetamine from Florida and had it transported to Maine. Fogg sold the drug in the Houlton area while other members of the conspiracy sold it in Bangor and Howland.
“The community of Houlton and the surrounding area has seen a worrying increase in methamphetamine use, which law enforcement officials take seriously,” US Attorney McElwee said. “If you, or someone you love, is suffering from such an addiction, please visit www.powerofprevention.org for the Aroostook County Addiction Directory.”
The US Drug Enforcement Administration and the Maine Drug Enforcement Agency investigated the case.
