A Gwynn Oak man was sentenced Wednesday to 10 years in prison for his role in a conspiracy to sell between 1 and 3 kilograms of heroin, prosecutors said.

Recco F. Beaufort, 52, was the principal transporter of heroin for a drug trafficking group that processed and distributed heroin less than 1,000 feet from a charter school, according to a statement from Maryland’s U.S. Attorney’s Office.

Beaufort delivered heroin for a New Jersey man named Charles C. “Billy” Guy, 43, to a Baltimore man named Christian Gettis, 39, the statement said. Gettis and Guy are scheduled to be sentenced next year.

Calls among the three men that revealed Beaufort as the ring’s main conduit were intercepted by the FBI, the U.S. Attorney’s Office said.
