ALBUQUERQUE, N.M. (AP) — A Hobbs man has been sentenced to more than 10 years in federal prison for methamphetamine trafficking.

Prosecutors say 40-year-old Donald Keith Colvin was given a 121-month prison term followed by [auth] three years of supervised release. He was sentenced Wednesday in federal court in Las Cruces.

A Lea County drug task force executed a search warrant at Colvin’s home in September 2012.

Officers say they seized nearly 60 grams of methamphetamine that was found in Colvin’s bedroom and in a bathroom safe plus four firearms.

Colvin was arrested in October 2012 on a criminal complaint alleging that he unlawfully possessed firearms.

He was prohibited from possessing firearms or ammunition because of a previous conviction.

Colvin pleaded guilty in January to a felony charge of methamphetamine possession with intent to distribute.
