Bangor Man Sentenced to 14 Years After Being Caught with 400g of Fentanyl, 30g of Cocaine and a Firearm while Out on Bail

BANGOR, Maine: A Bangor man was sentenced today in U.S. District Court in Bangor for possessing controlled substances with the intent to distribute and being a felon in possession of a firearm.

U.S. District Judge John A. Woodcock, Jr. sentenced Allen Henry, 49, to 168 months in prison followed by five years of supervised release. Henry pleaded guilty May 23, 2023.

According to court records, in May 2022, officers with the Brewer Police Department responded to a call for service and located Henry in a parked vehicle. A record check revealed Henry had an active warrant for his arrest and active bail conditions stemming from a state charge. The bail conditions prohibited him from using or possessing any alcohol or illegal drugs. Upon conducting a bail check to ensure Henry was compliant with conditions, officers located more than 400 grams of fentanyl, approximately 30 grams of cocaine base and a firearm in his vehicle. Henry has a previous 2013 state conviction that prohibits him from possessing firearms.

The U.S. Drug Enforcement Administration, Maine Drug Enforcement Agency, and the Brewer Police Department investigated this case.
