Meth Dealer Gets 12 Years

Posted: Updated:
BILLINGS -

A Lockwood man who faced federal charges for distributing methamphetamine is sentenced to 12 and a half years in prison.

Walter J. White pleaded guilty to distribution of methamphetamine and possession of a firearm in furtherance of a drug crime. In January, agents say White was shot by his son over a drug money dispute.

Then, in March, federal and state agents searched White's home where they seized firearms, four ounces of methamphetamine, with a street value of about $10,000 and a little more than $15,000 in cash.

Court documents show White admitted to receiving one to two pounds of meth each week starting late last year and would distribute it to other individuals.
