LITTLE ROCK, Ark. (AP) - A former Arkansas State Police lieutenant has been sentenced to more than 11 years in prison after pleading guilty in a drug case.

Prosecutors had accused former Lt. Sedrick Reed of conspiring to distribute and possess cocaine. At a plea hearing in July, Reed admitted taking drugs from a traffic stop and the Arkansas State Police evidence locker.

Federal prosecutors say Reed admitted making more than $200,000 in profit from the stolen drugs.

Reed was sentenced Thursday in federal court in Little Rock to 135 months in prison. He had pleaded guilty to one count of participating in a conspiracy to distribute and possess controlled substances, and federal prosecutors dismissed four other charges as part of the plea deal.
