A former Montgomery Township man who, along with his already-incarcerated brother, took part in a tri-county Pennsylvania cocaine ring busted in 2011 by Montgomery County detectives, was sentenced to 10 to 20 years in state prison for his role.
Anthony Dennis Sr., 42, had been free on 10 percent of $1 million bail, but began his sentence on Wednesday, per The Reporter.
Dennis' brother, Michael, 37, was sentenced to 18 to 36 years in prison in April 2013 for taking part in the cocaine ring.
Authorities said the Dennis brothers were big-time cocaine dealers. Anthony Dennis was busted in a sting operation in a Target parking lot in Philadelphia, attempting to buy nine ounces of cocaine, per the report.  The brothers were brought down through wiretaps of their phones and the phone of one of their underdogs, James "Twin" Adams, of Norristown, police said.
All in all, 27 people were taken into custody and charged as part of Operation Heads Up, named after the barber shop that Anthony Dennis owned and operated in Chester County, police said. The investigation began with Tredyffrin Township Police in November 2008.
