New York Man Sentenced For Trafficking Crack, Heroin In Maine
MAY 12 - PORTLAND, 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 Charles Flores, 27, of Bronx, New York was sentenced yesterday in U.S. District Court by Judge Jon D. Levy to 2½ years in prison and three years of supervised release for possession with intent to distribute heroin and cocaine base, commonly known as “crack.” Flores pled guilty on January 9, 2017.
Court records reveal that on March 21, 2016, federal agents responding to a tip went to a hotel in Brunswick, Maine and observed Flores engage in what appeared to be a drug deal. A search of Flores and his hotel room resulted in the seizure of heroin, crack and $6,900.
This case was investigated by the DEA, the Maine State Police and the Lewiston Police Department.
