Bangor, Maine:  United States Attorney Halsey B. Frank announced that Anthony G. Berry, 49, of Bangor, was sentenced today in U.S. District Court by Judge John A. Woodcock, Jr. to three months in prison and three years of supervised release for conspiracy to transport stolen goods in interstate commerce.  He was also ordered to pay over $9,000 in restitution and a $9,000 fine.  Berry pled guilty on May 3, 2017.
