BISMARCK, North Dakota — A man accused of leading a heroin ring on the Fort Berthold Indian Reservation has been sentenced to five years in prison.

Zachariah Walker pleaded guilty in November to conspiracy to possess with intent to distribute heroin. Two other charges, including tampering with a witness, were dropped as part of the plea deal.

Authorities say Walker regularly travelled to Utah to buy drugs to distribute in North Dakota. He is one of seven people charged in the case.

U.S. District Judge Daniel Hovland ordered Walker to serve three years of supervised release when his prison term is completed.
