Paul Smith of Deer Park was a professional firefighter in the city of Middletown until his arrest in 2019. This week in Goshen the 52 year old was sentenced to 10 to 25 years in state prison as a major drug trafficker and for conspiracy. He also will have to forfeit over $300,000 he made selling drugs and several vehicles he owns including a Chevrolet Corvette and Harley Davidson Motorcycle. Smith held late night meetings with drug distributors at the central firehouse in Middletown. They were all members of motorcycle clubs who used their bikes to distribute cocaine and pills. This is an example of what greed can do to someone who was already blessed with a good job and pension. Very sad.
