More than two years in prison for man who had drugs in rectum in Moorhead

MOORHEAD - One of two Minneapolis men accused of selling crack cocaine, which police found hidden in their rectums when they were arrested, was sentenced to two years and three months in prison Monday in Clay County District Court.

Robert Russell Brent III, 22, received credit for 217 days served in jail.

Brent pleaded guilty on Nov. 28 to third-degree controlled substance crime. As part of a plea agreement, four second-degree drug charges were dismissed.

The other man charged, Cedric Deon Hart, 29, also pleaded guilty to a third-degree drug charge and is set for sentencing on Jan. 19.

According to complaints filed in court, Moorhead officers were looking for a suspected crack dealer who sold to an informant when they arrested both men on felony warrants issued in Hennepin County, Minn.
