CONCORD, N.H. (AP) - A Massachusetts man has been sentenced in federal court in New Hampshire to 14 years in prison for participating in a conspiracy to distribute oxycodone and cocaine.

Court documents say 42-year-old Franklyn Morillo, of Haverhill, Massachusetts, worked with others to distribute the drugs in both states. An investigation with cooperating individuals, surveillance and wiretaps shows the group was responsible for the distribution of thousands of oxycodone pill and several kilograms of cocaine. Over $18,000 was taken from Morillo’s home in Haverhill during a search warrant in 2015.

Morillo, who pleaded guilty, was one of six people who indicted that year on charges of conspiracy to distribute and possess with intent to distribute, controlled substances. The others also have pleaded guilty.
