MONTGOMERY, Ala. (AP) - Federal authorities say a man with ties to a white supremacist group faces more than 17 years in prison after being convicted on methamphetamine charges.

Prosecutors say 52-year-olld Mark Edward Elliott of Autauga County received the sentence after being convicted of conspiring to distribute drugs.

Elliott was arrested in March 2013.

The Montgomery Advertiser (https://on.mgmadv.com/1nsbKdq ) reports that federal records indicate Elliott was a leader in the Aryan Brotherhood.

The group is a prison gang with white supremacist beliefs. Elliott has tattoos of Swastikas and the words “White Power” on his body.

Authorities say Elliott was arrested during a sweep that included the arrest of 15 people in four counties.

Officials say the bust broke up part of a pipeline that was funneling meth into central Alabama from Atlanta.
