HENDERSON (KTNV) — A Henderson man was sentenced on Thursday to six years in prison for distributing methamphetamine, according to a press release from U.S. Attorney's Office.

According to court documents, between March 6 and April 3, 2018, Kenneth Hall, 38, sold a total of 383.6 grams of methamphetamine in Henderson and Las Vegas.

At the April 3 drug sale, Hall showed and offered to sell a handgun to the buyer.

Later that day, during a traffic stop, officers found over 300 grams of methamphetamine, plastic baggies, and $4,080 in cash in Hall’s vehicle.

Hall pleaded guilty to one count of possession of a controlled substance with intent to distribute methamphetamine. In addition to the prison term, U.S. District Judge Andrew P. Gordon sentenced Hall to five years of supervised release.

Assistant U.S. Attorney Christopher Chiou for the District of Nevada and Special Agent in Charge Francisco Burrola for Homeland Security Investigations (HSI) made the announcement.
