Cody N. Seitz was sentenced Thursday to more than seven years in prison after selling nearly a pound of methamphetamine to an undercover officer during several transactions last year.

Seitz, 28, and Michael A. Menica, 47, of Caldwell, conspired to sell the illegal drug during five separate deliveries before they were arrested.

Seitz was arrested Aug. 28 when he went to Boise to meet with the undercover officer. During a traffic stop, police found 14 grams of methamphetamine and five pills of 30 mg oxycodone, a prescription painkiller that is frequently abused.

He pleaded guilty to conspiracy in January, a month after Menica admitted his guilt to the same charge.

Both men were ordered to forfeit $7,600 in drug proceeds.

The case was investigated by the Drug Enforcement Administration, the Ada County Sheriff’s Office, and the City County Narcotics Unit in Canyon County.
