A 31-year-old man was sentenced Friday to 60 months in federal prison for being involved in a conspiracy to sell crack cocaine in Camden and possessing a firearm, prosecutors said.

Preston J. "Boo" Thomas previously pleaded guilty to selling crack on and around the 1100 block of Lansdowne Avenue as part of a conspiracy.

Thomas and other codefendants were originally charged in a 2016 complaint following a long-term investigation by the FBI's South Jersey Violent Offender and Gang Task Force.

Thomas also was sentenced by U.S. District Judge Jerome B. Simandle to four years of supervised release.
