LEWISTON, Maine — Six people have been sentenced to prison for their roles in a crime spree in the Lewiston area last year that included three home invasions.

Jason Jean, Ryan Thompson, Nicholas Malcolm, Midnight Blue, Elaine Desrosiers and Victoria Pinkham were sentenced Thursday in federal court to sentences ranging from one year to 24 years for the January 2011 spree.

Prosecutors say they were all involved in a plan to force their way into an apartment to steal crack cocaine and heroin.

The Sun Journal reported that two of them, convicted felons, carried guns. When the first home invasion netted them only jewelry, they forced their way into another home to steal prescription drugs. A third home invasion days after the first two netted some of the suspects more prescription medication.
