The office of the U.S. attorney for Vermont says Artis, who was known as “K.I.” and “Snook,” bought heroin and crack cocaine from sources in Brooklyn and then sold the drugs in Rutland between the fall of 2008 and spring of 2009.

Prosecutors say he had females whom he met in Vermont drive him back and forth from Brooklyn to Vermont in rental cars, hide the drugs on themselves and sell them in and around Rutland.

Officials say he committed the crime while on probation for a felony drug offense in Vermont.
