A Wichita man was sentenced Thursday to more than 10 years in federal prison after being convicted of selling methamphetamine to an undercover police officer.

Patrick C. Hains, 39, was sentenced to 121 months after pleading guilty to selling a pound of meth for $20,000, U.S. Attorney Barry Grissom said in a news release.

Hains was arrested Jan. 14 at the Pelican Point Apartments, 2150 N. Meridian, after the undercover officer made the buy. Also known as “Chance,” according to court documents, Hains kept a shotgun behind the front door of his house in the 500 block of South Woodchuck to protect himself while making drug deals.

Two other Wichita men also were also involved in the case.

Wyatt Leedy, 35, is awaiting trial for allegedly being involved in the sale of the meth to the undercover officer, according to court records.

Jose Ramon Montelong-Castrejon, 28, reached an agreement with federal prosecutors in May to plead guilty to fraudulently presenting a Social Security number in 2011 to a Wichita business, according to court records. He is set for sentencing Aug. 1.
