Maine Oxy Trafficker Sentenced

JUNE 08 (BANGOR, Maine) –Michael J. Ferguson Special Agent-in-Charge of the DEA’s New England Division, and Acting United States Attorney Richard W. Murphy announced that Brandon Lancaster, 21, of Norridgewock, Maine, was sentenced in U.S. District Court by Judge John A. Woodcock, Jr. to four years in prison to be followed by three years of supervised release for distributing oxycodone.  Lancaster pleaded guilty on February 22, 2017.

According to court records, on August 31, 2016, Lancaster sold eleven 30 mg oxycodone pills to an individual working with law enforcement for $500. 

In imposing the sentence, Judge John Woodcock noted that illegal drug distribution has an “insidious impact on the fabric of a community” and that individuals who get involved in the drug trade begin “dancing with the devil.”  Judge Woodcock admonished Lancaster for being a “traitor to the community.”

The investigation was conducted by the U.S. Drug Enforcement Administration
