Bangor, Maine: United States Attorney Thomas E. Delahanty II announced that Mario
Levesque, 41, of New Brunswick, Canada, was sentenced today in U.S. District Court in Bangor by Chief
Judge John A. Woodcock, Jr., to 13 months imprisonment for importing Oxycodone. Levesque pled
guilty to the charge on February 15, 2012.
Court records reveal that in December 2011, Levesque drove from Canada into the Port of
Entry in Limestone, Maine. During a secondary inspection, agents found 200 Canadian-made Oxycodone
pills hidden in two clear baby bottle liners concealed in his pants.
The investigation was conducted jointly by the Department of Homeland Security, Homeland
Security Investigations and the Maine Drug Enforcement Agency with assistance from U.S. Customs and
Training and seminars for Federal, State, and Local Law Enforcement Agencies.
