SCRANTON — A Pittston man was sentenced in federal court Tuesday to peddling more than 500 grams of cocaine for nearly 10 years.

U.S. District Court Judge Edwin M. Kosik sentenced John Estock, 37, to two years in prison and three years of supervised release on a charge of conspiring to distribute cocaine in Luzerne County from 2002 to April 2012. Estock pleaded guilty to the charge in May.

Estock and others obtained cocaine in New York City to distribute in Luzerne County, according to the criminal information filed in May.

A second man linked to Estock, Frank Suriano, 44, of Pittston, pleaded guilty to conspiring to distribute cocaine in Luzerne County. Suriano is scheduled to be sentenced Oct. 31.
