A 28-year-old Tacoma man has been sentenced to 46 months in prison after pleading guilty to possessing methamphetamine with intent to distribute, the U.S. Attorney’s Office announced today.

Felipe Daniel Galeana delivered about 15 pounds of cocaine to Lane County, Ore. between October 2009 and June 2010.

A drug informant in Oregon arranged to buy 10 ounces of cocaine and two ounces of methamphetamine and Galeana was arrested trying to sell the drugs a block from an elementary school, according to court documents.

Investigators found 374 grams of cocaine and 29 grams of methamphetamine in his car.
