Bangor Man Sentenced to 3 Years for Being a Felon in Possession of a Firearm and Ammunition

Toman Caudill Discharged a Handgun in a Bangor Residential Neighborhood

BANGOR, Maine: A Bangor man was sentenced today in U.S. District Court in Bangor to being a felon in possession of a firearm and ammunition.

U.S. District Judge John A. Woodcock, Jr. sentenced Toman Caudill, 31, to 36 months in prison followed by three years of supervised release. Caudill pleaded guilty January 17, 2024.

According to court records, in September 2023, officers with the Bangor Police Department responded to a report that a male had fired a handgun in a residential area. A bystander directed officers to Caudill, and he was taken into custody when officers found a box of 9mm ammunition in his backpack. Further investigation revealed that Caudill had discharged a Ruger 9mm pistol and then handed the firearm to his fiancée as officers approached. Caudill stated that he had fired the gun due to an altercation with another male. The Ruger 9mm pistol was recovered and seized, as was the ammunition from Caudill’s backpack.

Caudill is prohibited from possessing a firearm or ammunition due to multiple prior felony convictions.

The Bangor Police Department and the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives investigated the case.
