LINCOLN, Neb. (AP) - A Mexican citizen has been sentenced to four years and nine months in federal prison in a Nebraska methamphetamine distribution case.

The Lincoln Journal Star reports (https://bit.ly/1oWRlsw ) 25-year-old Juan Carlos Garcia-Gamino received the sentence this week. He was convicted of possession with intent to distribute 500 grams or more of methamphetamine.

Garcia-Gamino was ordered to serve four years of supervised release after his sentence. He also faces deportation.

Federal prosecutors say he sold meth to an undercover officer in Lincoln in December 2013 and January 2014. Officers found two pounds of meth in his car in April.
