PORTLAND, Maine:  A Sanford woman was sentenced today in federal court for conspiring to distribute fentanyl and cocaine, U.S. Attorney Halsey B. Frank announced.

U.S. District Judge George Z. Singal sentenced Jennifer Golden, 47, to 41 months in prison and four years of supervised release. Golden pleaded guilty on February 5, 2020. 

According to court records, Golden conspired with others to distribute fentanyl and cocaine in southern Maine between October 2018 and September 2019. During the course of the conspiracy, one of Golden’s co-conspirators was arrested in Massachusetts while making a run to purchase drugs for her. Police officers seized over 40 grams of cocaine and 100 grams of fentanyl incident to that arrest. On September 26, 2019, members of the FBI’s Safe Streets Gang Task Force and other officers executed search and arrest warrants at Golden’s residence in Sanford. During the search, agents seized cocaine base, cocaine powder, fentanyl, psilocybin mushrooms, cutting agents and a digital scale with drug residue. 

The FBI and the Sanford Police Department investigated the case.
