Somerset County Man Caught with 760 grams of Fentanyl is Sentenced to 57 Months for Drug Trafficking
BANGOR, Maine: A Cambridge man was sentenced today in U.S. District Court in Bangor for his role in a conspiracy to distribute and possess with intent to distribute fentanyl, cocaine base, methamphetamine and cocaine in Penobscot County.
U.S. District Judge John A. Woodcock, Jr. sentenced Jeffrey Frost, 40, to 72 months in prison followed by four years of supervised release. Frost pleaded guilty on March 28, 2023.
According to court records, between January 2021 and April 2021, Frost conspired with others to distribute the drugs in the Penobscot County area and elsewhere. As part of the conspiracy, Frost regularly obtained drugs and supplied them to a local dealer, Jason Lee Lary, to sell for him. Frost came to investigators’ attention during jail house calls by and with Lary in which it was demonstrated that Frost was supplying drugs to sell, including the drugs recovered at the time of Lary’s arrest. Those drugs included 53 grams of cocaine base, 80 grams of fentanyl mixture, 25 grams of methamphetamine, and 40 grams of cocaine. In a later interview with investigators, Frost admitted that he had met Lary in 2021 through one of Frost’s customers and began supplying him with drugs after that introduction.
In September 2022, Lary was sentenced to two years in prison followed by five years of supervised release for his role in the conspiracy.
The U.S. Drug Enforcement Administration and Somerset County Sheriff’s Office investigated the case.
