A Porum man will spend more than 10 years in a federal prison on a drug-related conviction.

Anthony Michael Grant, 35, was sentenced to 121 months in prison to be followed by five years of supervised release for possession with intent to distribute methamphetamine.

The charges arose from an investigation by the Porum Police Department, the McIntosh County Sheriff’s Office, and the Federal Bureau of Investigation.

The indictment alleges that on or about Oct. 28, 2018, Grant did knowingly and intentionally possess with the intent to distribute 50 grams or more of methamphetamine, a Schedule II controlled substance.

“Rural Oklahoma has seen so much devastation caused by methamphetamine," said U.S. Attorney Brian J. Kuester. "Overdose deaths caused by methamphetamine are on the rise and we must continue to diligently pursue drug dealers. Because of the joint efforts of the FBI and its Safe Trails Task Force agency partners, federal law enforcement resources were effectively used to make a positive impact in Eastern Oklahoma. Law enforcement works best when we work together.”
