YAKIMA, WA - Two people from Yakima have been sentenced in federal court for possession of methamphetamine with intent to deliver.

A U.S. District Court Judge on Monday sentenced Jose Trevino Gallegos, 48, to over 17 years in prison followed by five years of court supervision. The judge sentenced Erin Kathleen Honeycutt, 34, to over seven years in prison followed by four years of court supervision.

The Yakima DEA Drug Task Force purchased meth multiple times from Gallegos in March and April of 2013. In April officers searched Gallegos' vehicles and home in Yakima. Officers then arrested Gallegos' in his vehicle with a loaded pistol. Honeycutt was arrested at the home where officers found illegal narcotics and multiple firearms.

Both Gallegos and Honeycutt have multiple prior felony convictions and admitted to possessing methamphetamine with intent to distribute it.
