A methamphetamine dealer from Corvallis was sentenced to 6 1/2 years in federal prison, according to the Department of Justice.
James Derby Rictor, 43, was sentenced in U.S. District Court in Eugene on Thursday. He pleaded guilty in March to possession with intent to distribute 49 grams of meth.
Investigators received information that Rictor was transporting meth between Douglas and Benton counties. In May 2016, Douglas County Interagency Narcotics Team detectives stopped his vehicle in Rice Hill.
A K-9 alerted to areas in his vehicle and trailer where detectives found a cashbox containing meth and items used to distribute meth.
Rictor was on probation in Benton County for felony theft and failure to appear at the time of his arrest.
