A Maine man has been sentenced to serve over 10 years in prison for distributing crack cocaine, conspiring to distribute the drug and other offenses.

The Sun Journal reports 33-year-old Paul Robinson, of Lewiston, was sentenced Tuesday in federal court to serve 121 months in prison. He pleaded guilty to the charges in September 2014.

Court records reveal that Robinson and others obtained crack in Massachusetts for distribution in the Lewiston area between early 2011 and September 2013.

A search of Robinson's home in April 2013 found crack cocaine, two firearms, video monitors, about $4,500 in cash and other items.

The case results from an investigation that involved the Maine Drug Enforcement Agency, state police and authorities from Androscoggin, Lewiston and Auburn.
