PROVIDENCE, R.I. (AP) - A Central Falls man serving 10 years on drug, gun and money laundering charges must serve 2½ more years for participating in a 2010 Connecticut home invasion that authorities say targeted an associate of a well-known crime family.

The U.S. attorney’s office says 32-year-old Napoleon Andrade was sentenced Tuesday to another five years and three months. About half will be served consecutive to his current sentence.

Andrade pleaded guilty in December to one count of conspiracy to commit robbery.

Authorities say Andrade provided “muscle” during the home invasion, part of a dispute over a loansharking debt of over $300,000.

The victim, a 78-year-old man known as an associate of the Gambino family, was bound and blindfolded. Authorities say $200,000 in jewelry, more than $16,000 cash and a shotgun were stolen.
