Four Rhode Island men, arrested 13 months ago in a drug and guns sweep across the Ocean State, have all been sentenced to Federal prison terms.  The sweep turned up quantities of cocaine, heroin, the synthetic drug “Molly.” Ecstasy pills and six firearms, including a machine gun.

The 15 month investigation began in March, 2012, and involved the DEA, FBI and other federal, state and local law enforcement agencies.  Sentenced this week in Federal Court in Providence were:

Salee Yang of Pawtucket, sentenced to 10 years in Federal Prison.

Eric Negron of Pawtucket, sentenced to 15 years in Federal prison.

Stanz Hun of Cranston, sentenced to 7 years in Federal prison,

Peter Lietar of Pawtucket, sentenced to two years in Federal prison and ordered to pay a $30,000 fine.

U.S. Attorney Peter Neronha says the long prison terms received by these men are well-deserved and will contribute to making our urban neighborhoods safer.
