NEW ORLEANS (AP) — Two men from Houma now face years of prison time in connection with a heroin scheme.

U.S. Attorney Kenneth Polite in New Orleans said in a Wednesday news release that 45-year-old Roland "Troy" Chambers was sentenced to five years and 11 months in prison while 40-year-old Gregory Jackson was sentenced to five years.

Chambers had pleaded guilty to one count of conspiracy to distribute heroin, one count of possession with intent to distribute heroin, and three counts of distribution of heroin. Jackson had pleaded guilty to one count of conspiracy to distribute heroin and five counts of distribution of heroin.

Prosecutors said the two had worked together to sell heroin in the Houma area.

The two were sentenced Tuesday by U.S. District Judge Jay C. Zainey.
