YORK, Pa. (WHTM) -

A York man will spend 22 years in a federal prison on cocaine trafficking and firearms charges.

Omar Sierre Folk, 32, was sentenced Thursday to 264 months in prison and five years of supervised release. He was also ordered to pay a $1,500 fine.

Police arrested Folk in Sept. 2011 after an attempted sale of crack cocaine. Approximately 144 grams of crack cocaine and a firearm were recovered during a search of his home, U.S. Attorney Peter Smith said.

He was indicted in October 2011 and convicted in August 2012 of distributing of over 280 grams of crack cocaine in and around York County from 2009 to September 2011, as well as possession of a firearm during his drug trafficking.
