Baldwin Man Sentenced to Five Years for Possessing Stolen Firearms

Portland, Maine: United States Attorney Halsey B. Frank announced that Aaron Dodd, 35, of Baldwin, Maine was sentenced today in U.S. District Court by Judge George Z. Singal to five years in prison for possession of stolen firearms. Dodd pled guilty on April 4, 2018.

According to court records, in March 2016, Maine State Police troopers seized four stolen firearms hidden by Dodd in Baldwin residences owned by family members. 

In imposing the sentence, Judge Singal noted that the sentence was appropriate in light of Dodd’s extensive criminal history, which included seven prior burglary convictions.   

The case was investigated by the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives, in conjunction with the Maine State Police and the Cumberland County Sheriff’s Office.
