GREENVILLE, S.C. (AP) – A South Carolina man has been sentenced to 15 years for trafficking fentanyl and other crimes.

News outlets report 38-year-old Troy Carlisle Watt pleaded guilty Monday to trafficking fentanyl, burglary, failure to stop for blue light, assault and battery.

A news release from Solicitor Walt Wilkins’ office says Greenville Police searched Watt’s home in 2017 on a burglary investigation search warrant. Police found about 18 grams of fentanyl, 2 grams of heroin and stolen property related to the burglary investigation.

Circuit Court Judge Perry Gravely handed down the 15-year sentence following Watts’ plea.
