Kirkwood Man Gets Eight Years in Heroin Case
A Broome County man who was one of several people arrested in a heroin distribution investigation has been sentenced to eight years in prison.
Prosecutors say 32-year-old Christopher Clerveau of Crescent Drive, Kirkwood, was sentenced Wednesday in Broome County Court.
Clerveau had pleaded guilty to two felonies in connection with the purported heroin distribution ring that investigators said was operating in the Binghamton area. He was sentenced on counts of enterprise corruption and criminal sale of a controlled substance in or near school grounds.
Authorities say the heroin trafficking network's sales totaled more than $100,000 over a period of 76 days last year.
Law enforcement officers rounded up four men and three women in a series of early-morning raids in Binghamton, Endicott and Endwell last July. Heroin, cash and cars were seized as part of the operation.
