TRENTON, N.J. (AP) - A Passaic County man who led a heroin supply ring has been sentenced to 15 years in state prison.

Authorities say 38-year-old Segundo Garcia’s network supplied heroin to large-scale dealers in New Jersey, New York, Pennsylvania and Washington.

Garcia and several others were indicted by a grand jury last year after a takedown of the ring in 2012 netted more than six pounds of bulk heroin, two pounds of heroin packaged for individual sale and more than $250,000 in cash.

Garcia pleaded guilty in December 2013 to possession of heroin with the intent to distribute. He won’t be eligible for parole for at least six years.

Authorities say many of the others charged in the case have pleaded guilty and face prison sentences.
