A Pocola man was sentenced to more than two years in prison for methamphetamine charges.

Duane Ray Bryant, 31, of Pocola, was sentenced to 30 months imprisonment, consecutive to state time he is currently serving, and three years supervised release for possession with intent to distribute methamphetamine.

The U.S. Attorney’s Office for the Eastern District of Oklahoma states the charge arose from an investigation by the Sallisaw Police Department, and the Drug Enforcement Administration.

“Methamphetamine ruins lives, families, and communities,” U.S. Attorney Brian J. Kuester said in a news release. “Those that deal drugs do so for their profit without regard to the destruction it causes. The defendant’s business has been shut down due to the efforts of the Sallisaw Police Department and the DEA, as well as law enforcement agencies in Arkansas, who investigated his criminal activity in that state. We commend those agencies for their work.”
