A Bangor, Maine man and his daughter were convicted of running a multi-state drug distribution ring earlier this week.

Fifty-nine-year-old Roger Belanger and 31-year-old Kelli Mujo were found guilty Monday of conspiracy to distribute controlled substances, possession with intent to distribute controlled substances and maintaining a drug-involved premise.

Prosecutors say the father and daughter would purchase cocaine and oxycodone in Rhode Island, which was then smuggled up to Dexter for sale in Maine. The duo reportedly ran the operation for 12 years.

Belanger and Mujo were arrested as part of an April 2015 drug sweep in Somerset and Penobscot counties that netted the arrest of eight others.

They each face a sentence of 10 years to life on the conspiracy charge and up to 20 years for maintaining a drug-involved premise.
