FORT WAYNE, Ind. (WPTA) - A federal judge has sentenced a Fort Wayne man to 195 months in prison following his conviction on counts of methamphetamine distribution and other crimes.

Jamic C. Johnson, 47, was arrested during the execution of a search warrant in October 2020.

In that raid, officers seized a “distribution amount” of methamphetamine, cocaine, a loaded handgun, a drug ledger, a loaded shotgun, additional ammunition, magazines, pills and a scale.

The U.S. Attorney says Johnson’s criminal history includes multiple felony offenses -- one conviction for carrying a handgun without a license and two others for dealing cocaine or a narcotic drug. Any of these felony convictions federally prohibit him from possessing a firearm or ammunition.

Following the completion of his prison term, Johnson faces another five years of supervised release.
