BUFFALO, N.Y. (WKBW) -- A Buffalo man was sentenced Tuesday morning on multiple drug charges.

40-year-old Luis Vazquez, who was convicted of conspiring to possess and distribute more than one kilogram of heroin, was sentenced to 51 months in prison.

Attorneys say in March 2012, Vazquez was pulled over by the Ohio State Highway Patrol. During the traffic stop and search of his truck and trailer, which was en route from Chicago to Buffalo, officers recovered 2.4 kilograms of heroin.

He and others were transporting the kilograms of heroin from Chicago for distribution in the Buffalo area.
