A man from Bangor who’s already served time for selling cocaine is going back to prison after admitting he was caught with it again.

63-year-old Glenn Watson pleaded guilty Thursday in federal court in Bangor.

He was arrested in June at Acadia National Park when a ranger spotted him at the Lakewood parking lot area.

The ranger said he smelled marijuana coming from the car and when he searched the vehicle he found pot, cocaine and $1,400 in cash.

Watson was taken into federal custody Thursday after his change of plea hearing and is expected to be sentenced in October.

Bangor police say Watson has a lengthy criminal record.

He was arrested in April 2010, one week after wrapping up 15-months in prison for dealing cocaine.

Police say he has other drug-related convictions dating back as far as 1988.
