PROVIDENCE, R.I. (AP) – A Massachusetts man convicted in Rhode Island of drug trafficking has been sentenced to five years in federal prison.
 
 Julio Ernesto Soto, of Salem, Mass., was arrested in a November 2010 Drug Enforcement Administration sting.
 
An informant working with the DEA arranged to buy $24,000 worth of cocaine from the 30-year-old Soto. DEA agents and local police officers arrested Soto when he arrived at the informant’s home to deliver the drugs.
 
An attorney for Soto did not immediately return a call seeking comment.
