Lewiston Man Sentenced to Almost Six Years for Crack Trafficking and Violation of Supervised Release Terms

Portland, Maine:  United States Attorney Halsey B. Frank announced that Ahmed Mohamed, 24, of Lewiston, Maine, was sentenced yesterday in U.S. District Court by Judge George Z. Singal to 46 months in prison and three years of supervised release for possession with intent to distribute cocaine base, commonly known as “crack.”   He was also sentenced to a consecutive two-year term of imprisonment for violating the terms of supervised release imposed on him in 2016 following a separate federal conviction for crack trafficking.  He pleaded guilty to crack trafficking and violating the terms of his supervised release on January 24, 2019.

Court records reveal that on August 15, 2018, law enforcement officers arrested Mohamed near a drug treatment facility in Lewiston and seized fifty baggies of crack. 

The investigation was conducted by the Lewiston Police Department and the Southern Maine Gang Task Force, which is comprised of agents and officers from the FBI; the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives; the Drug Enforcement Administration; U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement’s Homeland Security Investigations; the Portland, South Portland, and Lewiston Police Departments; and the York County Sheriff’s Office.
