A Loudon man was sentenced to 10 years in federal prison for conspiring with others to distribute methamphetamine.

Michael Bean, 33, previously pleaded guilty on Sept. 27 to the charge in U.S. District Court in Concord.

Prosecutors say Bean and his girlfriend, Katie-Joe Waters, received packages containing “nearly pure methamphetamine” in Pembroke from Las Vegas drug supplier Edward Espejo and then distributed the illegal drug to New Hampshire dealers. The couple would then wire the proceeds from their sales to Espejo to buy additional drugs, according to court documents. Between January and May 2018, Bean and Waters wired more than $28,000 to Las Vegas to buy methamphetamine.

Inspectors with the U.S. Postal Service intercepted a package from Espejo to Waters that spring that contained one pound of the drug.

Waters previously pleaded guilty and was sentenced Tuesday to six years in federal prison. Espejo also reached a plea deal and is awaiting sentencing.
