RALEIGH, N.C. (AP) — Federal prosecutors say two men were sentenced in separate cases to seven years or more in prison for distributing drugs.

The Raleigh-based U.S. Attorney's Office said Miguel Angel Gierbolini was sentenced Thursday to seven years in prison after previously pleading guilty to conspiracy to distribute cocaine and heroin. Authorities say he was part of a group of traffickers that shipped cocaine worth approximately $3.5 million to Cumberland and Sampson counties. They say he kept drugs, guns and money at his home in Fayetteville.

In a separate case, Stanley Jamar Ragin was sentenced to eight years after previously pleading guilty to conspiracy to distribute heroin. Authorities say he was a supplier in the Fayetteville area.

Attorneys for the two men didn't immediately respond to messages seeking comment Thursday.
