Man arrested in drug crackdown sentenced to 70 months in prison

Muskogee, Oklahoma (AP) 6-08

An Okmulgee County man arrested as part of a drug crackdown in eastern Oklahoma has been sentenced to five years and 10 months in federal prison.

U.S. District Judge Ronald White sentenced 30-year-old Alvin Harrison on Tuesday after Harrison was convicted of possession with intent to distribute and distribution of crack cocaine.

U.S. Attorney Sheldon Sperling says Harrison also received a three-year term of supervised release as part of the sentence.

Harrison was one of about 90 people arrested last October during an effort authorities dubbed “Operation Sixkiller.”

Authorities have said the operation targeted the suppliers of methamphetamine, cocaine, crack cocaine and marijuana in and around the Creek Indian gaming facilities and Indian lands located in Muskogee, McIntosh and Okmulgee counties.
