PORTLAND, Maine: An Old Orchard Beach man was sentenced today in federal court for conspiring to distribute fentanyl and crack cocaine, U.S. Attorney Halsey B. Frank announced.

Chief U.S. District Judge Jon D. Levy sentenced Aboubacar Congo, 32, to 78 months imprisonment and three years of supervised release. Congo pleaded guilty in October 2019.

According to court records, between September and November 2018, Congo conspired with several other individuals to distribute and possess with intent to distribute fentanyl and crack cocaine. Congo served as the leader of a group that obtained the drugs from out-of-state suppliers and distributed them to customers in the Old Orchard Beach area. Congo maintained an apartment in Old Orchard Beach where he and other conspirators lived. When agents executed a search warrant at the apartment in November 2018, they found fentanyl and crack cocaine inside.

The U.S. Drug Enforcement Administration and the Maine Drug Enforcement Agency investigated the case.
