FAYETTEVILLE, Ark. (KNWA) — A Tulsa man will spend years in prison for distributing methamphetamine in Northwest Arkansas, said Duane “Dak” Kees, U.S. Attorney for the Western District of Arkansas.

Jorge Abraham Sandoval-Iruegas, 33, of Tulsa was sentenced Monday, Aug. 12 to 10 years in federal prison followed by five years of supervised release for one count of distributing methamphetamine, Kees said.

Kees said, Sandoval-Iruegas distributed meth in Northwest Arkansas.

In a controlled buy, he told the buyer he’d sell one pound of meth for $6,500, but police said 10 percent of the drug purchased was actual meth, and the rest was a cutting agent, according to authorities.

He pleaded guilty March 2019 to the charge.
