Story By Newswatch 12 News Team

MADISON - A Wausau man will do ten years in federal prison for a methamphetamine bust this spring.

The U.S. Attorney's office for western Wisconsin says 32 year old Nathaniel Drow was sentenced Thursday.


Wausau Police had seen Drow and Antron Allen sitting in a car in April.

Warrants were out for both men.

As police got close to the car, Drow jumped out and dropped a small bag of meth.

A search turned up almost half a pound of meth in the vehicle.

Trial in Allen's case is set for December 10th in U.S. District Court in Madison.
