ALBION – A village resident was sentenced to six months in jail and five years on Probation for selling prescription drug narcotics from his West Academy Street home.

Vance R. DeRoller, 45, faced a maximum sentence of 5 ½ years in state prison when he was charged with 21 counts of either criminal sale or criminal possession of a controlled substance after being arrested in June.

DeRoller sold hydrocodone pills that were mixed with acetaminophen, a pain reliever. Hydrocodone and acetaminophen combined are considered a narcotic.

DeRoller pleaded guilty in August to fourth-degree criminal sale of a controlled substance.
