BOISE, Idaho -

The U.S. Attorney's Office for the District of Idaho says that 52-year-old Raymond Joseph Pruneau of Boise was sentenced Thursday to spend 97 months in prison for conspiracy to distribute methamphetamine. 

The judge also ordered Pruneau to serve five years of supervised release and forefit $100,000 in drug proceeds. 

According to evidence presented in court, Pruneau conspired with others in Ada and Canyon County to distribute large amounts of methamphetamine between October 2015 and February 2016. 

Undercover officers say they discovered the conspiracy when they were able to make several purchases from Pruneau.

When officers searched his home, they found 824 grams of methamphetamine and 415 grams of cocaine.
