For Immediate Release
U.S. Attorney's Office, Northern District of New York

SYRACUSE, NEW YORK – Adam Baldwin, age 42, of Binghamton, New York, was sentenced today to 30 months’ imprisonment for attempted possession with intent to distribute methamphetamine.

United States Attorney Carla B. Freedman and Special Agent in Charge Matthew Scarpino of the Buffalo Field Office of Homeland Security Investigations (HSI) made the announcement.

As part of his prior guilty plea, Baldwin admitted that in September 2021, he agreed to receive shipments of methamphetamine, which he provided to another individual in exchange for payment. Baldwin had the shipments delivered to a UPS Store in Alexandria Bay, New York, where he picked them up. In October 2021, law enforcement intercepted two of the packages addressed to Baldwin, which contained a total of approximately 1,070 grams of pure methamphetamine.

United States District Judge David N. Hurd also ordered Baldwin to serve a three-year term of supervision following his release from prison.

This case was investigated by U.S. Homeland Security Investigations (HSI), the Metro-Jefferson Drug Task Force (comprised of detectives from the Jefferson County Sheriff’s Office, the Watertown Police Department, the Jefferson County District Attorney’s Office), and the Santa Ana Police Department in California. Assistant U.S. Attorney Matthew J. McCrobie prosecuted the case.
