ALBUQUERQUE, N.M. (AP) - A 37-year-old Clovis man faces 12½ years in prison after being sentenced on his methamphetamine trafficking conviction.

Michael Montoya was sentenced Tuesday in federal court in Albuquerque. Besides being sentenced to 151 months in prison, he also was ordered to pay $60,000.

A court document says that amount represents some of the money he made from the illegal activity.

Montoya and three co-defendants were arrested in 2013 on a six-count indictment charging them with meth trafficking.

The case was investigated by the FBI, the IRS, the Curry County Sheriff’s Office and the Clovis Police Department.
