On Monday, John Raymond, 36, was sentenced to 4 years in prison for his role in an attempted robbery of illegal drugs from a dealer.
“Raymond, along with others, developed a plan to steal controlled substances from a Rangeley residence,” said the U.S Attorney’s office.
In July of 2016, Raymond, along with Andre Muller, and Robert Holland, of New York , and Hector Munoz of Florida, with at least one other conspired to invade a home in Rangely, attempting to steal controlled substances from a drug-dealer’s house.
Raymond began the plan by purchasing illegal drugs from the resident of the house in question, in order to verify that the resident possessed the drugs.
Later that night, July 28, Raymond drove two of the conspirators to the home, where he stayed in the car, intending to serve as a getaway driver.
As Raymond waited in the car, the resident of the house shot and killed one of the conspirators, prompting Raymond to flee the scene.
Raymond was eventually stopped by police when he was caught bringing another conspirator to a bus station.
Muller and Hollander were convicted of the 2016 crime over seven years later, and are still awaiting sentencing.
Munoz was sentenced on January 12 to 54 months in prison for his role in the robbery.
