Vincent "Big Baby" Brown, a 24-year-old Stamford man, was sentenced Monday to more than 10 years in federal prison for distributing crack cocaine.

Brown, formerly of Rose Park Avenue, was sentenced by Chief U.S. District Judge Alvin Thompson to 130 months in prison followed by eight years of supervised release, said a statement from U.S. Attorney David Fein.

According to the statement, Brown traveled to the Bronx, N.Y., on more than 10 occasions from September to November 2009 and purchased more than 8 ounces of crack cocaine, which he took to the Stamford area to sell in smaller quantities.

On April 29, Brown pleaded guilty to one count of conspiring to distribute 5 grams or more of crack cocaine.

Brown, who was on parole from a state conviction for selling narcotics at the time of his arrest, has been jailed since Dec. 3, 2009, when he was charged in a joint drug investigation by Stamford Police Department's Narcotics and Organized Crime Squad, the federal Drug Enforcement Administration and the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives.
