AUGUSTA — A former Rochester, New York, man was sentenced to 30 months behind bars Tuesday for dealing heroin in Augusta last November.

Alex L. Brumfield, 29, also known as “Izzo,” was living in Augusta when the unlawful trafficking and unlawful possession offenses occurred.

He also pleaded no contest to the criminal forfeiture of $2,196 cash and a semiautomatic handgun.

Complaints filed at the Capital Judicial Center allege that Brumfield was dealing drugs from a Washington Street apartment, where a confidential informant with a recording device purchased cocaine and heroin from him in September 2016. They also say Brumfield sold heroin from a North Street apartment Nov 3, 2016. Some court documents list a Windsor address for Brumfield as well.

In exchange for Brumfield pleading guilty Tuesday to charges of unlawful trafficking for the latter offense and to a charge of unlawful possession dated Nov. 9, 2016, when police executed a search warrant at Brumfield’s North Street apartment, the other charges were dismissed. Brumfield was arrested that same day and remained at the Kennebec County jail in lieu of bail.

Assistant District Attorney Tyler LeClair said the money was located in Brumfield’s pants and that a gym bag in his bedroom contained a .45 caliber pistol and 28 individual packets of heroin for an estimated 5.6 grams total.


Brumfield’s attorney, Matthew Bowe, told the judge that the confidential informant currently has a warrant out for his arrest, but Brumfield indicated he wanted to take the plea rather than go to trial.
