BRIDGEPORT, Conn. (AP) - An Ansonia man prosecutors say sold oxycodone and other prescription pills nearly nonstop from his apartment has been sentenced to nearly five years in federal prison.

James Costanzo was sentenced Wednesday to four years and nine months behind bars, three years of probation and fined $5,000.

Prosecutors say there was a nearly constant stream of vehicles to Costanzo’s home, sometimes making his street nearly impassable.

The Connecticut Post reports that Costanzo was so busy, his girlfriend told federal investigators that he only took a daily break from 4 p.m. to 6 p.m. to run errands, tally inventory and count cash.

Business was so good he was able to buy five houses, one for cash, as well as vehicles, two personal watercraft, a motorcycle, and guns.

He expressed remorse in court.
