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

ROCHESTER, N.Y.-U.S. Attorney Trini E. Ross announced today that Ray C. Mack, Jr., 30, of Augusta, Maine, who was convicted of conspiracy to possess with intent to distribute, and to distribute, 40 grams or more of fentanyl, was sentenced to serve 135 months in prison by U.S. District Judge Charles J. Siragusa.

Assistant U.S. Attorney Brett A. Harvey, who handled the case, stated that Mack was part of a drug trafficking organization that distributed quantities of fentanyl, para-fluorofentanyl, and cocaine in Rochester, NY, and Augusta, Maine. Members of the conspiracy operated a drug house at a Woodward Street residence in Rochester and a Waldo Street residence in Augusta, where they sold the illegal narcotics to customers. On May 26, 2021, a search warrant was executed at the Waldo Street residence, during investigators recovered seven grams of fentanyl and a loaded 9mm pistol. Mack was arrested at that location at the time of the search.

The sentencing is the result of an investigation by the Homeland Security Investigations, under the direction of Special Agent-in-Charge Matthew Scarpino, the Monroe County Sheriff’s Office, under the direction of Sheriff Todd Baxter, and the Rochester Police Department and the Greater Rochester Area Narcotics Enforcement Team (GRANET), under the direction of Chief David M. Smith.
