Bangor man sentenced for cocaine trafficking
BANGOR, Maine (WABI) - A Bangor man has been sentenced to five years in prison for cocaine trafficking.
The U.S. Attorney’s Office says 35-year-old Christian Barreto distributed cocaine to a law enforcement informant in July 2020.
Later that month, agents executed a search warrant at his Holden residence and found cocaine, cash, several cellphones and a handgun.
Officials say their investigation revealed Barreto sold nearly 14 pounds of cocaine in Penobscot County over 2-and-a-half years.
Barreto pleaded guilty last June.
