Belgrade couple face sentencing for trafficking in oxycodone

A Belgrade man and his wife have been nabbed trafficking in oxycodone, according to the U.S. Attorney's office.
Curtis Simmons, of Florida and Belgrade, was sentenced to nine and a half years in prison in U.S. District Court by District Judge George Z. Singal, U.S. Attorney Thomas E. Delahanty II reported. The prison term is to be followed by three years of supervised release for conspiracy to distribute oxycodone. Simmons was also ordered to forfeit about $23,000 and a shotgun. Simmons pleaded guilty to the offense on March 15, Delahanty reported.
In August 2010, the Maine Drug Enforcement Agency and the Kennebec County Sheriff's Office executed a search warrant at Simmons's residence in Belgrade. Law enforcement personnel subsequently seized over 600 oxycodone pills, about $23,000 in cash and a loaded shotgun, Delahanty said. Simmons was arrested on state charges following this seizure.
On Oct. 14, 2010, law enforcement personnel learned that while in jail, Simmons and his wife, Allison, were arranging for another shipment of oxycodone pills from Florida to Maine, Delahanty said. After receiving this information, agents with the U.S. Drug Enforcement Administration met Simmons's wife as she got off of an airplane at the Portland International Jetport, he said. Agents seized 520 oxycodone pills from her bags. Allison Simmons entered a guilty plea on April 24 to conspiracy to distribute oxycodone. She is scheduled to be sentenced on Aug. 24, Delahanty said.
This case results from a joint investigation conducted by MDEA, DEA and the KCSO and the ongoing effort of the Organized Crime Drug Enforcement Task Forces, a partnership between federal, state and local law enforcement agencies.
