Caribou Man Sentenced for Conspiring to Distribute Meth
A 30-year-old Caribou man was sentenced Thursday, August 26 for conspiring to distribute and possess with intent to distribute methamphetamine.
Nathan Corbibn received a sentence of four years in prison, handed down by the U.S District Judge Lance E. Walker. Corbin also received three years of supervised release. Officials said Corbin’s sentence was adjusted to four years after he had already served 27 months in custody for a related Maine court case.
The court records indicate that Corbin conspired with others to obtain meth between July 2018 and May 2019. They got the drugs from states in the western and southern parts of the United States. The meth was distributed in Aroostook County by Corbin and his co-conspirators. The drugs were also distributed to other parts of the state including central and northern areas.
The sentencing announcement was made by Acting U.S. Attorney Donald E. Clark.
Multiple agencies are involved in the case including the Maine Drug Enforcement Agency, state and local law enforcement as well as Homeland Security and the United States Drug Enforcement Administration.
The Organized Crime Drug Enforcement Task Force is also investigating as part of the prosecution. OCDETF works on a multi-agency level to disrupt and dismantle money laundering, and the highest levels of drug traffickers, gangs, and criminal organizations.
