A 26-year-old Rochester man was sentenced to more than 12 years in prison after being convicted on charges of conspiracy to possess with the intent to distribute 28 grams or more of cocaine and possession of firearms.

Assistant U.S. Attorney Robert Marangola said Anthony Kellum and other gang members were involved in obtaining large amounts of powder cocaine, then turning that into crack cocaine and selling it on Rochester’s west side.

The U.S. Attorney’s Office tells News10NBC Kellum was one of five defendants arrested in this case and all five have been convicted.

Kellum was also ordered to forfeit two firearms and rounds of ammunition seized during the investigation.
