N.D. meth dealer gets 10 years in federal prison

GRAND FORKS — A 36-year-old man accused of dealing methamphetamine in North Dakota and elsewhere has been sentenced to 10 years in prison.

Cristobal Garza pleaded guilty in July on a federal drug conspiracy charge. He's one of five men charged in the case.

Authorities say the defendants traveled to Illinois to obtain meth and transported it to North Dakota and Minnesota for distribution.

U.S. District Judge Ralph Erickson sentenced Garza to the mandatory minimum term of 10 years.
