Augusta Man Sentenced For Growing Dope Inside State Airport Grounds

Eldad Carin – ThinkStock

Here’s a word to the wise.  If you ever need a butt load of cash to pay restitution from a charge of arson, growing marijuana inside the grounds of a state airport to pay for it is not a good idea.

Marlon Cloutier, 48,  a dry-waller from Augusta was busted on August 16th, 2012, when Augusta cops caught him growing 148 marijuana plants inside the fence of the Augusta State Airport. Along with the marijuana charge was also a charge for possessing 2.5 ounces of cocaine. Yesterday in a Bangor courtroom, Cloutier was sentenced to two years in prison.

Cloutier had been convicted on six charges of arson back in 1992.  He and two other men had gone on a two hour arson spree burning barns and a house in Belgrade and Sidney in June of 1991. He was ordered to spend 20 years in prison and to pay $126,000 in restitution to the victims. He admitted to growing the marijuana in order to pay his debt.

Cloutier told cops that he had previously grown pot outside of the airport fence but had it stolen.  He then moved inside the operation inside airport grounds.
