Millinocket Man Sentenced to Two Years for Theft of a Firearm

Bangor, Maine: United States Attorney Halsey B. Frank announced that Randolph Bourgoin, III, 32, of Millinocket, Maine, was sentenced today in U.S. District Court by Judge Lance E. Walker to two years in prison and three years of supervised release for theft of a firearm from a federally licensed dealer. He was also ordered to pay $430 in restitution. Bourgoin pleaded guilty on April 3, 2019.

According to court records, on November 27, 2018, Bourgoin stole the firearm from a display case at a gun dealer in Milo. The theft was caught on surveillance video, and Bourgoin later admitted to the theft.

The case was investigated by the Milo Police Department and the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives. This case was brought as part of Project Safe Neighborhoods (PSN). PSN is the centerpiece of the Department of Justice’s violent crime reduction efforts. PSN is an evidence-based program proven to be effective at reducing violent crime. Through PSN, a broad spectrum of stakeholders work together to identify the most pressing violent crime problems in the community and develop comprehensive solutions to address them. As part of this strategy, PSN focuses enforcement efforts on the most violent offenders and partners with locally based prevention and reentry programs for lasting reductions in crime.
