GULFPORT, Miss. (AP) - A 55-year-old Carriere man arrested in a probe of meth trafficking in Pearl River and Hancock counties has been sentenced to prison for his role in the drug distribution ring.

The Sun Herald reports (http://bit.ly/1NlrqYE) Gerald Calhoun received a 5-year sentence this week on a charge of possession with intent to distribute meth. U.S. District Judge Sul Ozerden also ordered him to serve four years under supervised release and pay a fine of $3,000.

A second suspect, 27-year-old Jaron Stubbs, of Picayune, pleaded guilty to the same charge in May. He is awaiting sentencing Aug. 11.

A federal grand jury indicted Stubbs and Calhoun on three conspiracy charges and one count of possession with intent to distribute. In exchange for their pleas, the government dismissed the remaining charge.
