United States Attorney Brendan V. Johnson announced that a Marion, South Dakota, man convicted of conspiracy to distribute 500 grams or more of methamphetamine was sentenced on December 30, 2013, by U.S. District Court Judge Karen E. Schreier.

Larry Wayne Alver, age 37, was sentenced to 120 months in custody to be followed by 5 years of supervised release.  He was also ordered to pay a $100 special assessment to the Federal Crime Victims Fund.
Alver was indicted by a federal grand jury on May 8, 2013, of Conspiracy to Distribute a Controlled Substance.  He pled guilty on September 9, 2013.
During his involvement in the conspiracy, Alver purchased methamphetamine from a co-conspirator and distributed it.  He also facilitated the distribution of methamphetamine by introducing his source of supply to another dealer.
This case was investigated by the Sioux Falls Police Department, the South Dakota Division of Criminal Investigation, and the U.S. Drug Enforcement Administration.  Assistant U.S. Attorney John E. Haak prosecuted the case.
Alver was immediately turned over to the custody of the U.S. Marshals Service.
