ANCHORAGE, Alaska — A 24-year-old Fairbanks man will serve 10 years in a federal prison for attempting to deal drugs.
Thony Yang was sentenced Monday in U.S. District Court in Anchorage for a conviction involving methamphetamine.
Law enforcement officers found a suspicious package that was to have been delivered to a co-defendant's residence in Anchorage. The U.S. attorney's office says in a release that authorities found 1,400 grams of meth in the package, and replaced it with fake drugs before delivering it.
The co-defendant, Cha Tony Vue, is scheduled for sentencing Nov. 6.
