NEW HAVEN, Conn. (AP) - A New York City man has been sentenced to more than five years in prison for his role in a ring that distributed thousands of oxycodone pills in Connecticut.

Prosecutors say 28-year-old Harlan Fields of the Bronx, New York, was sentenced Monday in federal court in New Haven to five years and six months behind bars and five years of probation.

Fields pleaded guilty in May to one count of conspiracy to possess with intent to distribute 5,000 oxycodone pills.

The investigation, which included the use of court-authorized wiretaps, controlled purchases, surveillance and the use of an undercover officer, revealed that Fields supplied the pills to a West Hartford man who then distributed them to customers and Hartford-area dealers.

Three other men have pleaded guilty for their roles.
