RUTLAND, Vt. (AP) - A Tinmouth, Vermont, man has been sentenced to more than three years in prison on heroin conspiracy charges.
Federal prosecutors say Alan H. Willis, II, pleaded guilty to conspiracy to distribute 100 grams or more of heroin. He was sentenced on Monday to 37 months in prison and also must serve two years of supervised release after his prison term ends.
Willis was accused of trafficking between 700 and 1,000 grams of heroin in the Rutland area from the summer 2012 to February of 2013. Authorities searched his residence last year and say they seized 1,500 bags of heroin and $4,800 in cash.
Willis has been held since his arrest.
Three people from New York and two from Rutland also have been charged in connection with the case.Copyright 2014 The Associated Press. All rights reserved. This material may not be published, broadcast, rewritten or redistributed.
