Man, 27, sentenced to 84 to 168 months in state prison on drug delivery charges

A Philadelphia man who pleaded guilty to different drug cases was sentenced in Lycoming County Court this week to at least seven years in prison.

Tyrone K. Sims, 27, was arrested on two separate occasions in October 2017 after selling fentanyl to informants in Williamsport.

He was also arrested that month after police stopped a vehicle in which he was passenger in the 800 block of Williamsport. The driver told police he had been attempting to buy a bundle of heroin for $70 from Sims, according to an affidavit.

Sims waived his jury trial earlier this year.

He faced counts of delivery of a controlled substance, possession with intent to deliver and possession.

He was sentenced to 84 to 168 months in state prison.
