Man sentenced to 5 years in drug gang probe

HUNTINGTON (AP) — A Huntington man convicted of robbing a drug dealer at gunpoint has been sentenced to five years in federal prison.

U.S. Attorney Booth Goodwin says 31-year-old Kamel Auntae Burris was sentenced Monday in federal court in Huntington.

Burris pleaded guilty in April to using a firearm to further a crime of violence.

Goodwin says the case arose out of an investigation of a drug distribution gang. The investigation led to indictments against Burris and 14 others. Burris had been described as an enforcer for the gang.
