FAYETTEVILLE -- A woman was sentenced to federal prison today for possessing methamphetamine.

Stormy Sea Lane, 28, of Fayetteville, was sentenced to 10 years in federal prison to be followed by three years of supervised release and was ordered to pay a $1,900 fine for one count of possession of methamphetamine with intent to distribute.

Police conducted a parole search of Lane during a traffic stop in April and found several baggies containing methamphetamine in her purse, according to court records. Lane was arrested, taken to jail, and searched again by law enforcement. The second search produced more methamphetamine.

Lane was released from jail on bond in May, but in June, police learned that Lane was again selling methamphetamine in the Springdale area. Police arrested Lane and seized an additional seven grams of methamphetamine.

Lane was indicted by a federal grand jury in July and entered a guilty plea in November.

U.S. District Judge Timothy Brooks presided over the sentencing hearing. Assistant U.S. Attorney Denis Dean prosecuted the case.
