A Fort Scott man was sentenced in federal court Thursday to more than 20 years in prison on drug trafficking charges that involved selling methamphetamine in 2012.

Jonathan Brumback, 43, was sentenced to 250 months and ordered to forfeit $27,000 in proceeds from the crime, U.S. Attorney Barry Grissom’s office said. Brumback was arrested after he sold meth to a KBI undercover agent in August 2012.

Brumback previously pleaded guilty. Two co-defendants, Johana Villanueva-Renteria and Rogelio Amada Lamas, are set for sentencing Oct. 22 and Dec. 9, respectively.
