A man accused of selling crack cocaine was sentenced to four years in prison after pleading guilty to the crime.

With a warrant to search a home, authorities found Manuel “Melo” Aragon with 52 rocks of crack cocaine, according to a press release from District Attorney Richard Flores.

A number of others were arrested as a result of the warrant, including Aragon’s nephew, Marvin Archuleta, and Aragon’s mother, Ruby Aragon, Flores said. Archuleta was recently sentenced to six years in prison for trafficking, while Ruby Aragon received three years of probation for conspiracy to traffic a controlled substance, the press release states.

“I want to thank law enforcement for their continued efforts in battling the war on drugs,” Flores said in a statement. “Every time a drug trafficker in removed from our community and sent to prison, then it makes our community that much better.”
