Maine Man Sentenced To Five Years For Conspiracy To Traffic Oxycodone And Cocaine
PORTLAND, Maine - Michael J. Ferguson Special Agent in Charge of the Drug Enforcement Administration for New England and United States Attorney Thomas E. Delahanty II announced that Anthony Lacomb, 30, of Biddeford, Maine, was sentenced in U.S. District Court by Chief Judge Nancy Torresen to five years in prison to be followed by three years of supervised release for conspiracy to distribute oxycodone and cocaine. Lacomb pleaded guilty on February 24, 2016.
According to court records, Lacomb was a manager of a group of people who imported oxycodone and cocaine from Rhode Island to Maine in 2014 and 2015. In April 2015, Lacomb was arrested in Scarborough when an undercover agent ordered cocaine and oxycodone from him. When Lacomb and another conspirator arrived to conduct the transaction, they were arrested. About an ounce of cocaine and 35 oxycodone pills were seized.
This case results from a joint investigation conducted by the U.S. Drug Enforcement Administration and Scarborough Police Department.
