PIERRE, S.D. (AP) - A 44-year-old man has been sentenced to more than four years in prison for possession with intent to distribute methamphetamine in Sully County.

U.S. Attorney Randolph Seiler says Nathan Van Weeda of Colorado was indicted by a federal grand jury in October 2014 and pleaded guilty in December 2015.

The arrest came from an October 2014 traffic stop on U.S. Highway 83 north of Onida. Seiler says a South Dakota Highway Patrol trooper found seven baggies of methamphetamine totaling 6.8 ounces in the car Weeda was driving.

He was sentenced this week and turned over to the custody of the U.S. Marshals Service.
