SCRANTON ?? A federal judge on Wednesday sentenced two Nanticoke men to seven years in prison each for their guilty pleas to drug trafficking.
Marcus Holder, 24, and Michael F. Bruce, 23, conspired to distribute more than 400 grams of heroin and more than 112 grams of crack cocaine from 2009 through April 29, 2011, according to federal prosecutors.
The two men also allegedly carried guns while dealing drugs, according to federal prosecutors.
U.S. Attorney for the Middle District of Pennsylvania Peter J. Smith said Holder and Bruce agreed to forfeit to the government $12,469 and five guns seized by investigators during a raid on April 29, 2011.
Senior U.S. Judge Edwin Kosik ordered the two men to serve four years probation after they complete their prison sentences.
The FBI and Plains Township police investigated the case.
