FAIRBANKS, Alaska (AP) -- A Colorado man who pleaded guilty to shipping almost $350,000 worth of methamphetamine to Fairbanks has been sentenced to 15 1/2 years in federal prison.

The Fairbanks Daily News-Miner reports 40-year-old Mario Gutierrez sent meth from the Denver area to a co-conspirator in Fairbanks during 2009 and 2010. The money was deposited in a bank account Gutierrez maintained in Alaska.

Gutierrez was sentenced Friday. He previously pleaded guilty to one count of drug conspiracy and one count of money laundering.
