FORT WAYNE, Ind. — An Ohio man was sentenced Thursday to 145 months in federal prison for possession with intent to distribute about 154 pounds of a mixture and substance containing a detectable amount of cocaine.
Special agents with U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement’s (ICE) Homeland Security Investigations (HSI) investigated this case.
In addition to his prison term, Uryan Frymire, 37, from Fremont, Ohio, was also sentenced to five years of supervised release after he completes his prison sentence.
