Prosecutors say an Oklahoma man was sentenced to nine years in prison for trafficking more than 20 pounds of methamphetamine.

The U.S. attorney's office said in a news release that 23-year-old Guillermo D. Andrade of Oklahoma City was sentenced Thursday on one count of possession with intent to distribute methamphetamine.

He admitted in his plea deal that he drove on July 12 from California to Kansas accompanying another car that was carrying the methamphetamine. The Kansas Highway Patrol stopped the other car for a traffic infraction and found what a field test showed to be a substance containing methamphetamine.

Andrade admitted he arranged to transport the methamphetamine from California to Oklahoma where he and others planned on selling it.
