Matthew Navejar, 39, of Caldwell, was sentenced Monday in U.S. District Court to 66 months in prison for distributing methamphetamine and unlawfully possessing firearms, U.S. Attorney Wendy J. Olson announced.
U.S. District Judge Edward J. Lodge also ordered Navejar to serve three years of supervised release after his prison term and to forfeit his interest in two guns. He pleaded guilty to the charges in June 2012.
According to the plea agreement, Navejar is prohibited from possessing firearms because of a 1997 conviction in Malheur County, Ore., for manufacturing and/or possessing a destructive device, Olson said in a news release. Navejar admitted that in November 2011, he sold a rifle to another individual from his residence in Caldwell and assisted in the sale of a revolver. The price paid for both firearms was $165. Navejar also admitted that he sold methamphetamine at a Canyon County residence later that month.
The case was investigated by the Treasure Valley Metro Violent Crimes Task Force.
