GRAND RAPIDS, Mich. — A man was sentenced to 21 years in prison in connection with dealing meth in Michigan and Oklahoma, U.S. Attorney Andrew Birge announced Friday.

A law enforcement investigation found that Rodgers Lee Shealy obtained meth and heroin from Pontiac, Michigan and Oklahoma, then transported the drugs to various locations in the Upper Peninsula. It included parts of Marquette County, Baraga County and Menominee County, the U.S. Attorney’s Office said.

Shealy pled guilty in August 2019 to conspiracy to distribute 50 grams or more of meth.

He will be supervised for eight years after his release.
