BANGOR – A Mattawamkeag man will spend five years in prison for bringing heroin into Penobscot County.
45-year-old Scott Gagnon pleaded guilty to aggravated heroin trafficking. Maine drug agents arrested him last year after a month-long investigation.
Gagnon and others were buying heroin out of state, then selling it in Howland, Lincoln and Mattawamkeag. Agents seized 1,000 bags of heroin.
Gagnon is sentenced to 12 years in prison, with all but five years suspended and three years probation.
