TIFFIN — Two Tiffin men convicted of selling drugs were sentenced to prison Monday in Seneca County Common Pleas Court.

Judge Steve Shuff sentenced John R. Smith, Sr., 41, to 10 years for charges that included complicity to burglary, trafficking in cocaine, and aggravated possession of cocaine.

John Martin Fonseca Beck, 22, was sentenced to six years for aggravated possession of drugs, trafficking in marijuana, and three counts of aggravated trafficking in drugs.

They were arrested in August after authorities searched Smith's Tomb Street house and found illegal drugs.
