AUGUSTA, Maine (AP) - A resident of Maine’s capital city has been sentenced to serve two years in prison for trafficking drugs throughout the Augusta area.

The Kennebec Journal reports (https://bit.ly/1rz00cH ) 35-year-old Joshua Arbour was sentenced Tuesday at the Capital Judicial Center after pleading guilty to two counts of unlawful trafficking in drugs and other offenses.

Assistant Attorney General Katie Sibley says Arbour has a lengthy criminal record, although this was his first drug conviction.

Prosecutors say Arbour’s arrest came as the result of an investigation by the Maine Drug Enforcement Agency. Confidential informants told investigators that they purchased cocaine and heroin from Arbour in September 2015 and March 2016.

Police say officers found heroin, crack cocaine, a loaded syringe and cash during a subsequent search of Arbour’s home.
