One of the men accused of dealing over $100,000 worth of heroin and crack cocaine in a drug bust in Broome County earlier this year will be serving seven and a half years in state prison.

46 year old James Brabham of Binghamton will also forfeit a car.

Co-defendants 59 year old Tyrone Thompson and 62 year old Joseph Bowles, both of Binghamton, were sentenced to five years in prison.

Prosecutors say police found drugs with an estimated street value of $116,000 during a search of a Clinton Street, Binghamton home.

The search followed a seven-month long investigation.

Authorities say they confiscated 9.8 ounces of unpackaged heroin and 895 bags of heroin packaged for sale along with 5.7 ounces of crack cocaine, a loaded handgun and $43,000 in suspected drug sale proceeds.
