PROVIDENCE, R.I. (AP) - A Woonsocket man will serve five years in prison for his role in a crack cocaine distribution conspiracy that operated in Central Falls.

Adalberto Negron was sentenced Thursday in federal court. He’ll serve four years of supervised release after his prison time.

The 31-year-old Negron pleaded guilty in September to drug-related charges.

Negron and two other men were arrested in November 2013 for their roles in the drug ring that operated for most of last year.

Prosecutors say a cooperating witness made at least 10 crack cocaine purchases from the defendants.

Negron is the third person convicted. His brother, Angel Vigo, was sentenced to time served and three years of supervised release.

The third defendant, Edwin Nieves, was sentenced to five years in prison and three years of supervised release.
