Portland, Maine:  United States Attorney Thomas E. Delahanty II announced that Scot Stolkner, 42, of Gray, Maine, Angela Green, 34, of South Portland, Maine, and Jonathan Day, 41, of Portland, pleaded guilty on April 1, 2016 in U.S. District Court to conspiring to distribute and possess with the intent to distribute controlled substances, including heroin, fentanyl, and alpha-pyrrolidinovalerophenone (a-PVP), commonly known as a “bath salt.” 

According to court records, from about August through late December 2014, Stolkner obtained heroin from out-of-state sources and had others transport it to Maine and sell it to his customers.  During the conspiracy, Green transported heroin and fentanyl for Stolkner and she, Day, and others sold it for Stolkner.

In about April 2015, Stolkner began obtaining a-PVP from a Chinese source.  Stolkner placed online orders and wired money to the supplier.  The supplier sent a-PVP to the addresses Stolkner provided.  Once the a-PVP was in Maine, Green, Day, and others sold it for Stolkner.

The defendants face up to 20 years in prison, a $1,000,000 fine and between three years and life on supervised release.  They will be sentenced after the completion of a presentence investigation report by the U.S. Probation Office.

The case was investigated by the U.S. Drug Enforcement Administration, with the assistance of the Maine Drug Enforcement Agency.
