BANGOR (AP) – A 35-year-old Canadian man has been sentenced to 37 months in prison for helping to smuggle 108 pounds of marijuana into Maine last March.

Joseph Marco Corbin was sentenced Monday in U.S. District Court in Bangor. He pleaded guilty to marijuana distribution and conspiracy charges in November.

According to the U.S. Attorney’s office, Corbin was arrested as he and another man attempted to transfer the marijuana to a third man on a deserted stretch of road in Ashland.

The marijuana was smuggled into Maine from Canada inside a hidden compartment in a tractor-trailer truck that had been used to deliver a load of wood chips to a plant in Ashland.
