Portland, Maine: United States Attorney Thomas E. Delahanty II announced that Shawn Figoli, 45, of Sidney, Maine, was sentenced today in U.S. District Court by Judge Jon D. Levy to 40 months in prison and three years of supervised release for possession with intent to distribute heroin and fentanyl.

According to Court records, on May 17, 2015, the Maine State Police received a report of a vehicle being operated erratically on the Maine Turnpike.  A trooper located the vehicle at the Kennebunk Service Plaza and determined that Figoli was its operator and sole occupant.  Figoli appeared to be impaired and had a bag that contained about 180 grams of heroin and fentanyl. 

This case was investigated by the Maine State Police and the U.S. Drug Enforcement Administration.
