MINOT, N.D. (AP) - A North Dakota man has been sentenced to more than 12 years in prison a drug charge.

Thirty-year-old Daniel Connelly, of Minot, pleaded guilty earlier to possession with intent to deliver a controlled substance.

Authorities say a search of Connelly’s residence in October 2012 yielded 163 grams of methamphetamine in a storage container. Police say they also found a loaded rifle next to the container.

Investigators say Connelly had obtained meth from Arizona and California in order to distribute it in North Dakota.

U.S. District Judge Daniel Hovland ordered Connelly to serve 12 years and seven months in prison, followed by three years of supervised release.

A federal public defender could not be reached for comment.
