A Fort Smith woman has been federally sentenced for drug distribution in northwest Arkansas.

Ingrid Garcia, 40, of Fort Smith was sentenced to 10 years in federal prison followed by five years of supervised release on one count of distribution of methamphetamine in the Western District of Arkansas. Her sentence stems from an investigation by the Drug Enforcement Agency and the Springdale Police Department, according to a Department of Justice news release.

According to court records, after several months of investigation, DEA officials and Springdale police learned that Garcia was distributing meth in northwest Arkansas. In October 2017, agents did a controlled purchase of suspected meth from Garcia, the release states.

The substance, which was tested at the DEA South Central Laboratory, contained 103.23 grams, or roughly 0.23 pounds, of meth, the release states.

Garcia was indicted by a federal grand jury in December 2017. She entered a guilty plea in January 2018, the release states.
