A Topeka man will spend more than five years in federal prison on drug charges.
50-year old Michael Ross, Sr. was sentenced Tuesday for distributing crack cocaine.
Investigators say Ross sold crack-cocaine to an undercover Kansas Bureau of Investigation agent in August 2007. They say the agent encountered Ross while driving his vehicle in east Topeka. Ross motioned for the agent to follow him to a dead end at 7th Street and Carnahan. That's where they say Ross gave the agent 12 plastic sandwich bags with crack cocaine, asking the agent to pay cash for four of them, and paying for the others once the agent sold them.
Ross will serve 63 months without parole.
