49-Year-Old Man Gets Life For Meth Distribution

Originally posted on CBS Minnesota:

FARGO, N.D. (AP) — A 49-year-old Moorhead, Minn., man has been sentenced in North Dakota to life in prison on a federal charge of conspiracy to possess methamphetamine with intent to distribute.

U.S. Attorney Timothy Purdon says Tovar was found guilty by a 12-person jury in January of conspiracy and aiding and abetting. U.S. District Judge Ralph R. Erickson sentenced him on Wednesday.

Purdon says Moorhead police officers were investigating a drug trafficking organization in the Fargo-Moorhead area. A motel room in Moorhead led to the arrest of one man, who said he was obtaining the drugs from Tovar.
