Prosecutors: Drug trafficker sentenced to 6 years in prison

November 28, 2018

BURLINGTON, Vt. (AP) — Federal prosecutors in Vermont say a New York City man caught with more than a kilogram each of crack cocaine and marijuana will serve six years in prison.

The U.S. Attorney’s office says 24-year-old Shane David was sentenced Monday in U.S. District Court in Burlington as the result of a plea agreement. The Rutland Herald reports David will also spend four years on supervised release following the completion of his sentence.

Vermont State Police said they pulled David over for speeding in West Haven in 2017, and found 1.4 kilograms of crack cocaine and just over 1 kilogram of marijuana inside his car during a search.

Prosecutors say the drugs had a combined street value between $170,000 and $200,000.
