For Immediate Release
U.S. Attorney's Office, District of Maine
BANGOR, Maine: A Penobscot man was sentenced Tuesday in U.S. District Court in Bangor for conspiring to distribute fentanyl.
U.S. District Judge Lance E. Walker sentenced Christopher Beaucage, 38, to 180 months in prison followed by four years of supervised release.
According to court records, in October 2021, Beaucage and a coconspirator were stopped by an officer from the Bucksport Police Department. After a search of the vehicle revealed approximately 60 grams of fentanyl, Beaucage admitted the fentanyl belonged to him, and he was arrested on outstanding warrants. While he was incarcerated, monitored and recorded phone calls revealed that Beaucage and others continued to engage in drug trafficking activities. Details discussed included traveling out of state to meet with a source, the prices of the narcotics and distributing fentanyl to customers in Maine.
The FBI and Bucksport Police Department investigated the case.
