BOISE, Idaho — A southwestern Idaho man has been sentenced to roughly seven years in prison for planning to distribute methamphetamine in Idaho.
U.S. District Judge Edward Lodge sentenced 45-year-old Meliton Nunez-Felix, of Caldwell, on Tuesday to 87 months in prison for conspiracy to distribute meth.
Nunez-Felix admitted to planning to distribute the 500 grams of meth with three other individuals throughout Idaho between July 2005 and October 2006. Investigators say they also found the group had distributed more than 100 pounds of the drug in Idaho.
Several entities were involved in the investigation including the Drug Enforcement Administration, the Ada County Sheriff’s Office and the High Desert task force in Payette.
