A 33-year-old man was sentenced to 60 months in jail for drug trafficking, possession and having a firearm.

Guilty Plea

Joshua Hopkins from South Portland will also have four years of supervised release. He pleaded guilty on February 21, 2024.

Wanted Man had Active Arrest Warrant

Hopkins had an active arrest warrant when police apprehended him at a South Portland hotel in April 2023, said court records.

Drug Trafficking and Possession Evidence Seized

Officers searched a backpack he was wearing and seized multiple scales, a single round of 7.62 mm x 39 mm ammunition, a blender that contained suspected fentanyl powder, smaller containers of additional suspected fentanyl powder, bags of suspected cocaine, and what appeared to be a substance used to “cut” drugs.

Suspect Supplied Drugs

Another man with the suspect said Hopkins had supplied him with drugs. He also told police Hopkins had a rifle in his car.

Rifle and Ammo Found in Vehicle

Officers found a black Norinco SKS-style rifle in the vehicle. The round of ammunition in the backpack matched the caliber of the rifle. Hopkins is prohibited from possessing firearms and ammunition due to prior felony convictions, said court documents.
