Federal Prison Sentence In Salina Meth Case

KSAL Staff - January 7, 2015 2:46 pm

A Salina man will spend nearly 11 years in federal prison in connection with a drug case. According to U.S. Attorney Barry Grissom’s Office,  30-year-old Lofton Clark has been sentenced to 130 months in federal prison for trafficking methamphetamine.

Clark pleaded guilty to one count of distributing methamphetamine. In his plea, he admitted that on February 27th, 2013, members of the I-135 / I-70 Drug Task Force arranged to purchase 26 grams of methamphetamine from him during a transaction in a vehicle at a location in Salina.

Grissom commended the I-70 Drug Task Force and Assistant U.S. Attorney Randy Hendershot for their work on the case.
