PROVIDENCE, R.I. (AP) — A fourth man targeted in a federal, state and local law enforcement investigation into the trafficking of heroin, Ecstasy, cocaine and other drugs has been sentenced to seven years in federal prison.

Rhode Island's U.S. attorney said 26-year-old Stanz Hun of Cranston was sentenced Tuesday. Authorities said he's a member of two street gangs and admitted to operating his own trafficking business and being a customer of Salee Yang of Pawtucket.

Yang, the probe's primary target, got a 10-year sentence in March. Two others who admitted being suppliers for Yang also received prison time.

Officials say the 15-month investigation resulted in the seizure of heroin, crack cocaine, cocaine powder, the synthetic "Molly," Ecstasy and six firearms.

The case was brought as part of the Rhode Island Urban Violent Crime Initiative.
