FAYETTEVILLE -- A Springdale man was sentenced to federal prison Wednesday for distributing methamphetamine.
Pablo Jacinto-Torres, 24, was sentenced to seven years to be followed by three years of supervised release on one count of possession with intent to distribute meth.
The Springdale Police Department in 2017 conducted several controlled buys of meth from Jacinto-Torres, according to court records. On May 15, Jacinto-Torres was stopped and arrested for an outstanding warrant. During the search of his vehicle, officers found digital scales, a large amount of cash and marijuana. A search of Jacinto-Torres' residence found approximately 6 ounces of meth.
Jacinto-Torres was indicted by a federal grand jury in June and entered a guilty plea in November.
This case was investigated by the Springdale Police Department. U.S. District Judge Timothy Brooks presided over the sentencing. Assistant U.S. Attorney David Harris prosecuted the case.
