Alleged drug dealer gets time served

    Anchorage, Alaska (KINY) - A Petersburg man received 21 months in federal prison and five years of supervised release for a methamphetamine case.

    Assistant US Attorney Jack Schmidt said Randal Long, 55, pled guilty to drug charges at a hearing in Anchorage Friday.

    Long was arrested in 2017 by Petersburg Police after they found 126 grams of methamphetamines inside a trailer he was renovating.

    Authorities also seized $5,000 in suspected drug cash and various items of drug paraphernalia.

    The street value of the illegal drugs was estimated to be over $25,000.
