Four Maine residents pleaded guilty Monday to operating a drug distribution ring in the Dexter area, said U.S. Attorney Thomas Delahanty II.

Charged with conspiracy to possess and distribute oxycodone and cocaine were John Williams, 39, of Stetson; Cynthia Williams, 43, of Stetson; Whitney Chadbourne, 22, of Harmony; and Corey Pomerleau, 24, of Harmony.

In a news release, Delahanty said the drugs were brought into Dexter from Rhode Island. The Williamses distributed the drugs and Chadbourne transported the drugs. At some point, Pomerleau sold oxycodone to buyers.

Each person faces a maximum penalty of 20 years in prison, a $1 million fine and life on supervised release.
