Aroostook County Man Sentenced to 10 Years for Methamphetamine Trafficking

BANGOR, Maine:  An Aroostook County man was sentenced in federal court today for conspiring to distribute and possess with the intent to distribute methamphetamine, U.S. Attorney Darcie N. McElwee announced.

U.S. District Judge Lance E. Walker sentenced Greg Libby, 44, to ten years in prison and five years of supervised release. Libby pleaded guilty on July 1, 2021.

According to court records, between approximately July 2018 and May 2019, members of the conspiracy obtained methamphetamine in western and southern states from sources in Mexico.  Libby and his co-conspirators then distributed the drugs in Aroostook County and other parts of central and northern Maine.

The U.S. Drug Enforcement Administration, Homeland Security Investigations and the Maine Drug Enforcement Agency investigated this case with the assistance of multiple state and local law enforcement agencies including the Presque Isle Police Department.

Organized Crime Drug Enforcement Task Forces: This effort is part of an Organized Crime Drug Enforcement Task Forces (OCDETF) operation.
