Posted: Updated:

A Huntington resident was sentenced Monday, Feb. 3, to a year and nine months in federal prison followed by three years of supervised release for possession of oxycodone with intent to distribute in October.

Eric Lavell Minter, 28, had pleaded guilty in October, U.S. Attorney Booth Goodwin said.

Minter was taken into custody outside the Greyhound Bus Station in Huntington. Goodwin said agents found him in a parked car, counting oxycodone tablets and a plastic bag in his lap.

Minter told police he was involved in peddling pills in the Huntington area, Goodwin said.

The Drug Enforcement Administration and Huntington police conducted the investigation. Assistant U.S. Attorney Joseph F. Adams prosecuted the case. Chief U.S. District Judge Robert C. Chambers sentenced Minter.
