AUGUSTA, Maine (AP) - A New York City man who admitted to trafficking heroin in Maine is headed to prison.

The Kennebec Journal (https://bit.ly/2apnTgk ) reports that 28-year-old Kendell Cagle of Manhattan was sentenced Tuesday in Augusta to seven years behind bars. Cagle pleaded guilty to one count of aggravated trafficking in heroin in June.

Prosecutors say investigators learned in December 2015 and January that drug traffickers from New York were moving large amounts of heroin and cocaine base from an Oakland apartment. Cagle was arrested on Jan. 21.

Co-defendant Shayna Shaw-Jenney pleaded guilty in the case and was sentenced to one year behind bars.

Prosecutors say Cagle was convicted in New York in 2013 of selling narcotics.
