A New York man was found guilty in federal court in Portland on Thursday of conspiracy to distribute oxycodone and oxymorphone. Damien Corbett, 40 of New Rochelle, had been smuggling drugs from New York from at least June 2013 to December 2014 to a couple in North Berwick for them to distribute in southern Maine, according to court records.

Agents from the federal Drug Enforcement Administration executed a warrant on Dec. 16, 2014, at the couple’s North Berwick home and seized more than 500 oxycodone pills and more than 350 Opana pills, according to a prosecution document filed by Assistant U.S. Attorney Daniel Perry. Opana is oxymorphone, an opioid.

The boyfriend and girlfriend, who are not named in court records, both identified Corbett as their supplier and agreed with investigators’ plans to stage a meeting with Corbett in Kittery on Dec. 19, 2014, where police arrested Corbett, who had about $2,500 in drug proceeds, Perry wrote in the document.

Corbett, whose trial lasted two days, is scheduled to be sentenced on March 24. He faces up to 20 years in federal prison and a fine of as much as $1 million.
