A Lancaster man was sentenced to eight years in prison late Wednesday after a jury found him guilty of trafficking crack cocaine outside a Walmart store in Rock Hill.
Michael Lymonne Foster Jr., 35, was charged by the York County Multijurisdictional Drug Unit in October 2016.
His arrest was the result of an undercover sale of about an ounce of crack in the parking lot of the store in Newport using an informant, prosecutor Matthew Shelton said.
Foster delivered the crack cocaine to his girlfriend in the parking lot of the store, Shelton said. The girlfriend then sold the drugs for $1,000 to an informant working for the drug unit, Shelton said.
Never miss a local story.
Police recorded the transaction on both audio and video, then followed Foster to a gas station, where they took more video verifying his involvement in the drug deal.
The girlfriend, who was not on trial this week, faces pending charges from the incident, prosecutors said.
