BANGOR, Maine — A federal judge in Maine has sentenced a 23-year-old Canadian woman to 18 months in prison on weapons and drug charges. The U.S. Attorney’s Office says Janaya Crawley of Nova Scotia was sentenced Friday in U.S. District Court in Bangor on charges of being a drug addict in possession of a firearm and possessing a controlled substance. Crawley was arrested in March while she was a passenger in a car attempting to cross from Canada into Calais. A border officer found a loaded handgun in Crawley’s purse and 344 Ecstasy pills in her possession and in the vehicle. At the time of their arrests, Crawley and the driver said they mistakenly arrived at the Calais border crossing after taking a wrong turn on their way to Toronto.
