SYRACUSE, N.Y. (AP) - Two Syracuse men have been sentenced to serve 15-plus years in prison for their convictions on drug and weapons charges stemming from a 2014 federal raid on their stash house.

The Post-Standard of Syracuse reports (https://bit.ly/1Vd6dYr ) 35-year-old Brock Yancy will serve just under 17 years in prison after being convicted of conspiracy to possess with the intent to distribute 280 grams or more of crack cocaine and possession of a firearm for use in drug trafficking.

Thirty-seven-year-old Dwayne Handy received a 15-year sentence after being convicted of the same charges plus a specification for 500 or more grams of cocaine and heroin.

Prosecutors say the men were apprehended following a joint drug trafficking investigation by the Drug Enforcement Administration and Syracuse police that began in 2013.
