HUNTINGTON, W.Va. (WSAZ) -- A Georgia man was sentenced Monday to nearly four years in prison on drug charges connected to a former Huntington business.

Vincent Woolfolk, 42, of Macon, Ga., was sentenced by U.S. District Judge Robert C. Chambers to 46 months in prison.

Woolfolk previously pleaded guilty in November. On Sept. 23, 2010, Woolfolk and an associate arrived at the Smokin’ Aces store that was located in Huntington. Woolfolk admitted that while inside of the store, he placed a cellophane bag containing crack cocaine on a digital scale.

The defendant subsequently sold 23.3 grams of crack cocaine to an undercover agent working with the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives (ATF) in exchange for $1,300. The undercover purchase was video recorded.

Woolfork also admitted that he participated in three additional crack cocaine sales at the Smokin’ Aces store on Sept. 2, Sept. 7 and Sept. 9, 2010.
