HARTFORD, Conn. (WTNH) — Vincent Nelson, 29, of Hartford has been sentenced to prison for distributing drugs and illegally having guns.

Investigators say they found many guns, drugs, and thousands in cash in Nelson’s home.
Nelson pleaded guilty to the charges against him. He was sentenced in U.S. District Court on Thursday to 90 months in prison and another four years of supervised release.
