TOPEKA, KAN. – A Topeka man was sentenced today to 94 months in federal prison for dealing drugs, U.S. Attorney Stephen McAllister said.

Anthony Lee Hunter, 51, Topeka, Kan., pleaded guilty to one count of possession with intent to distribute methamphetamine. In his plea, he admitted that when investigators searched his residence in the 700 block of northeast Emmett Street they turned up more than 30 grams of methamphetamine and more than 11 grams of heroin. Hunter told investigators that earlier that week he spent more than $30,000 buying drugs in Kansas City and the drugs they seized were all he had left.

McAllister commended the FBI, the Lawrence Police Department and Assistant U.S. Attorney Jared Maag for their work on the case.
