CHEYENNE, Wyo. — A Cheyenne man has been sentenced to nearly 25 years in prison after police seized nearly 40 pounds of methamphetamine and cocaine from his vehicle and home.
U.S. District Judge Nancy Freudenthal sentenced Phillip Martin on Monday for conspiracy to distribute methamphetamine, distribution and for possession of a firearm. Martin received 235 months in prison on the first count and 60 months on the second.
In November, officers first found nearly 9 pounds of meth and cocaine in Martin's vehicle, and a later search of his home turned up 29 pounds of meth and another pound of cocaine, along with 25 guns and $18,500 in cash.
At the time of Martin's arrest, authorities said it was one of the largest seizures in Wyoming history.
