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 six years and six months in federal prison, followed by four years of supervised release for possessing methamphetamine with intent to distribute.

The Veterans Affairs Police Department in April 2018 received information Billingsley, an employee, was distributing methamphetamine to 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 4 ounces of methamphetamine when he returned from the West Siloam Springs, Okla., casino.

A federal grand jury indicted Billingsley in December, and he entered a guilty plea in March.

U.S. District Judge Timothy L. Brooks presided over the sentencing hearing.
