BANGOR — A federal judge in Maine has sentenced a 41-year-old Canadian man to 13 months in prison for trying to smuggle oxycodone into the United States.

Mario Levesque, who’s from New Brunswick, was sentenced Tuesday in U.S. District Court in Bangor.

Levesque pleaded guilty in February to trying to illegally bring oxycodone across the border at Limestone last December.

Prosecutors say that border agents found 200 oxycodone pills hidden in two baby bottle liners that were concealed in Levesque’s pants.
