BANGOR — A Somerset County man who led law enforcement on a high-speed chase through Norridgewock and Madison in January 2023 has been sentenced to serve 57 months in federal prison.

Cody Mosher, 29, was sentenced Wednesday in U.S. District Court in Bangor for possession with intent to distribute fentanyl.

More than $90,000 worth of drugs were found in the 2013 Chevrolet Cruze that Mosher was driving more than a year ago, along with more than 330 pills.

Deputies from the Somerset County Sheriff’s Office attempted to execute a search warrant on Mosher’s vehicle in the parking lot of a Skowhegan laundromat, but Mosher refused to get out of the car.

Mosher took off, striking a sheriff’s detective, and was pursued through Norridgewock into Madison, where a Maine State Police trooper forced him to stop.

Mosher, who at the time was an Anson resident, was charged with aggravated trafficking in a scheduled drug, eluding a police officer, assault and refusing to submit to arrest or detention.


More than $10,000 in cash, cocaine and a pound-and-a-half of fentanyl, a synthetic opioid that is up to 50 times stronger than heroin, were seized from his car.

He pleaded guilty Sept. 1.

In addition to his prison sentence, U.S. District Judge John A. Woodcock also sentenced Mosher to four years of supervised release.

The U.S. Drug Enforcement Administration also investigated the case with help from the Maine State Police.
