A Canadian man who federal prosecutors said was responsible for smuggling drugs into Niagara Falls and Niagara County was sentenced this week to two years in federal prison.

U.S. Chief District Judge William M. Skretny imposed the sentence on Edman Ho, 28, of Timmins, Ont. He was convicted of conspiracy to import the drug MDMA, better known as ecstasy, into the U.S. from Canada.

Assistant U.S. Attorney Mary Catherine Baumgarten, who prosecuted the case, said it began with an investigation by Immigration and Customs Enforcement under the director of Special Agent in Charge James C. Spero.
