FAYETTEVILLE -- A man was sentenced to more than five years in federal prison Monday for selling methamphetamine in Northwest Arkansas.
Bruce Wayne Billingsley, 63, of Fayetteville was sentenced to 78 months in federal prison, followed by four years of supervised release for possessing more than 50 grams of methamphetamine with intent to distribute.
The Veterans Administration Police Department in April, 2018 received information that Billingsley, an employee, was distributing methamphetamine to other employees, according to court records. Billingsley went to the Cherokee Casino on June 9, 2018 to purchase a quarter pound of methamphetamine for $2,000. Detectives arrested him and seized about four ounces of methamphetamine when he returned from West Siloam Springs, Okla., casino.
A federal grand jury indicted Billingsley in December 2018, and he entered a guilty plea in March.
U.S. District Judge Timothy L. Brooks presided over the sentencing hearing.
