Updated 6 years ago

(AP) A federal court jury on Wednesday found 55-year-old Raymond Fogg of Winn and 42-year-old Anthony Caparotta of Caribou guilty of marijuana distribution and Social Security fraud.

Prosecutors said Fogg and Caparotta worked for Michael Pelletier, an Aroostook County man who was convicted of running a multimillion-dollar cross-border marijuana smuggling operation from his wheelchair while collecting disability checks. Pelletier is serving a life sentence.

The jury found that Fogg and Caparotta were responsible for distributing between 220 and 2,200 pounds of marijuana between 2004 and 2006 after it was brought into Maine.
