Ex-Gardnerville man gets prison for heroin trafficking

February 21, 2019

GARDNERVILLE, Nev. (AP) — A former Gardnerville man convicted of selling heroin as part of a drug ring at Lake Tahoe has been sentenced to up to six years in prison.

The Record-Courier reports 28-year-old Adam Guenther received consecutive sentences of one to three years after pleading guilty earlier this month to one count of drug trafficking and one count of sales of a controlled substance.

The former Nevada man was arrested in Jackson County, Oregon after fleeing Douglas County.

Attorney Kris Brown said the felony charges were the result of a drug sale that occurred before Guenther was caught with heroin twice in March 2018.
