Rembert man convicted of drug trafficking

COLUMBIA, SC (WCSC) - A Rembert man was sentenced in federal court Monday for his role as a drug trafficker.

Isaac Nelson, 33, was convicted of trafficking cocaine and marijuana, U.S. Attorney William Nettles said in a release. Prosecutors used intercepted phone calls between Nelson and one of his drug suppliers to lock up the conviction.

Agents also seized nearly $40,000 in cash and two firearms from Nelson according to the release.

U.S. District Judge Cameron M. Currie of Columbia sentenced Nelson to 240 months imprisonment.
