PORTLAND, Maine — The ex-president of the Maine chapter of the Iron Horsemen Motorcycle Club and two co-defendants have been found guilty of running a major cocaine and marijuana distribution ring between Massachusetts and Maine.

A federal jury in Portland deliberated for seven hours over two days before returning its verdict Wednesday against Richard Szypt, Sherwood Jordan and Ramon Dellosantos.

Szypt, of Haverhill, Mass., kept a home in Old Orchard Beach, Maine, and was chapter president from 2005 until the indictments were handed up last spring.

The Portland Press Herald said Szypt and Jordan face between 10 years and life. More than a dozen other defendants had pleaded guilty to taking part in the drug conspiracy. Some testified for the prosecution during the six-day trial.
