A Saline County man is the fourth person sentenced to prison for a methamphetamine distribution ring.
Thirty-three-year-old Shane Curtis Sheets of New Cambria was sentenced Wednesday to more than 11 years in federal prison for methamphetamine trafficking.
Sheets pleaded guilty to one count of conspiracy to distribute methamphetamine.
Investigators discovered that another co-defendant, Kevin Dale Ashcraft, regularly gave a quarter pound of methamphetamine to Sheets, who sold it to other dealers and users.
Ashcraft and two other defendants are already in prison, with sentences ranging from 54 months to 240 months.
