A Bangor man will spend the next eight years behind bars.

United States Attorney Halsey B. Frank announced that Syriane "Del" Baldwin, 31, of Bangor was sentenced in U.S. District Court to eight years in prison and three years of supervised release for conspiracy to possess with the intent to distribute and to distribute heroin, cocaine base, commonly known as “crack,” and oxycodone. Baldwin pled guilty to the charge on October 25, 2017.

According to court records, between January 2013 and September 2015, Baldwin conspired with others to obtain heroin, crack and oxycodone in New York City and to distribute it in the Bangor area and elsewhere.  This case was related to the prosecution of Mario Lee, a/k/a “Moe,” who was sentenced on May 5, 2017 to 218 months in prison for his role in the conspiracy.

The case was investigated by the Maine Drug Enforcement Agency and the U.S. Drug Enforcement Administration, and prosecuted as part of the Department of Justice's Strategy to Combat the Opioid Epidemic.
