BANGOR -- A man from Mexico (the country, not the town) was sentenced yesterday to 10 months in prison for illegally having guns and ammunition and for being an illegal alien.

During March of 2007, Rogelio Figueroa-Figueroa, 22, was working at the Flood Farm in Clinton when Immigration and Customs Enforcement Agents executed a search warrant under the suspicion that he was working in the state illegally.

During the search, agents found weapons and ammunition. They also learned that Figueroa-Figueroa had entered the United States across a river illegally nearly three years ago.

Figueroa-Figueroa pleaded guilty to his crimes on Aug. 22.
