FARGO, N.D. — A Devils Lake man has been sentenced to 10 years in federal prison for dealing drugs.

Forty-year-old Jeremy Crist pleaded guilty in April to conspiracy to possess with intent to distribute a controlled substance. The charge carries a mandatory minimum sentence of 10 years.

Authorities say an informant working with a narcotics task force arranged a methamphetamine deal with Crist, who was later arrested. Officers say Crist was in possession of 12 bags of meth, marijuana and drug paraphernalia.

U.S. District Judge Ralph Erickson ordered Crist to serve eight years of supervised release after his prison term.
