FAYETTEVILLE -- A Springdale man was sentenced to federal prison Monday for selling methamphetamine.
Michael Reed, 38, was sentenced to eight years and four months in federal prison followed by four years of supervised release and fined $2,400 for one count of possession of meth with intent to distribute.
Investigators with the 4th Judicial District Drug Task Force arranged a purchase of meth from Reed in September, according to court records.
While searching Reed's property, investigators seized a digital scale, drug paraphernalia, and a short-barreled shotgun. A search of Reed's vehicle yielded a vacuum-sealed bag with a smaller bag containing meth, a digital scale and the cash from the controlled buy.
Reed was indicted by a federal grand jury in September and entered a guilty plea in January.
U.S. District Judge Timothy L. Brooks presided over the sentencing hearing. Assistant U.S. Attorney Sydney Butler prosecuted the case.
