MISSOULA — A Missoula man who admitted to distributing methamphetamine in the community for several years has been sentenced to 18 months in prison and four years of supervised release.

Bradley Scott Lane, 37, pleaded guilty in December to possession with intent to distribute meth.

In court records filed in the case, the prosecution said that in October 2018, the Missoula High Intensity Drug Trafficking Area Task Force had an informant buy an ounce of meth from Lane for $800. A DEA lab test determined the product contained a small amount of meth.

In an interview with law enforcement, Lane admitted to distributing meth, primarily eight-balls, which is one-eighth of an ounce. In addition, other individuals interviewed by law enforcement said they bought meth from Lane from about 2017 to 2019.
