A man who was arrested in a drug bust at an art gallery in Aberdeen has been sent to prison.
37-year-old Brandon Messmer was sentenced to serve a total of 2 ½ years in prison and pay more than $2,200 in fines and fees. He and another person involved in the case also must repay $1,566 in drug-testing costs.
Authorities say they found drugs at Messmer's Aberdeen home and at the gallery, where he stored vending machines and ATMs for his business. He pleaded guilty earlier to possessing synthetic drugs. Gallery operator Sherri Bauer was sentenced to prison earlier.
