A Florence man was sentenced to 15 years in prison after admitting to conspiring to distribute 50 grams of methamphetamine and possessing a firearm to further his drug trafficking operation.

Domingo Garcia, 44, received his 180-month sentence from Judge Amul Thapar in the U.S. Courthouse in Covington on Monday.

The investigation was conducted by the Drug Enforcement Administration. The U.S. Attorney’s Office was represented by Assistant U.S. Attorney Tony Bracke.
