TOMAH Wis. (WLAX/WEUX) – A Tomah man will serve more than six years in prison for methamphetamine trafficking. U.S. Attorney Timothy O’Shea sentenced 57-year-old Stephen Thompson of Tomah to 78 months in prison today.

In August, Thompson plead guilty to a charge of possession with intent to distribute fifty grams or more of meth. An investigation revealed Thompson received nine packages containing meth in the mail from Arizona at various addresses in the Tomah area.

In March, postal inspectors searched a package sent to an associate of Thompson’s in Tomah and found approximately 220 grams of meth. Thompson was arrested that same day.
