LUFKIN, Texas (KTRE) - A judge sentenced a Lufkin man Thursday to five years for dealing cocaine out of his home.

Willie Lee Sturgis, 64, pleaded guilty in December to the crime.

Sturgis was arrested in Jun. 2009 after Angelina County Sheriff's deputies served a warrant on his home on the 800 block of Jackson Street. Deputies found five grams of cocaine, almost $2,000 in cash and a stolen rifle at the home.

The district attorney's office dropped two of the four charges against Sturgis, in exchange for the plea.
