A Greenville man was sentenced to 25 years in prison for possessing large amounts of marijuana, crack cocaine and cocaine.

Prosecutors said 39-year-old Ricky Mack was found guilty of trafficking marijuana, trafficking crack cocaine and trafficking cocaine.

Deputies said Mack was arrested in November 2009 after they received a tip that he and 35-year-old Keith Johnson were going to buy a large amount of marijuana at a location on Highway 101. They said investigators set up a sting operation and watched the pair exchange about $13,600 for nearly 14.5 pounds of marijuana. The men were arrested moments later, they said.

A search of the men's vehicle turned up nearly 13 grams of powder cocaine and 20 grams of crack cocaine, investigators said.

Mack must serve 80 percent of his sentence before being eligible for parole.

Johnson pleaded guilty to trafficking marijuana earlier this year. He was sentenced to 10 years in prison.
