Portland, Maine: United States Attorney Thomas E. Delahanty II announced today that
Anthony Foglio, 28, of Waterboro, Maine, was sentenced yesterday in U.S. District Court by
Judge Nancy Torresen to 70 months imprisonment, to be followed by 3 years of supervised
release, for being a felon in possession of firearms. Foglio pled guilty to the charges on May 22,
2013.

According to court records, state agents received information that Foglio, a person who
had felony convictions in Maine for theft, criminal mischief, and burglary, had engaged in a
series of transactions in which he bought and sold nine firearms in May 2012. Agents contacted
the businesses involved in these transactions and learned that Foglio was present for each
transaction but that he used third parties to conduct them. Agents interviewed the third parties
and each admitted to conducting the transaction for Foglio and that Foglio took possession of the
firearms immediately after each firearm purchase.

The investigation was conducted by the Maine State Police; the York County Sheriff’s
Office; the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives; and the Drug Enforcement
Administration (DEA).
