SHELLBYVILLE, Ind. (WISH) – A man was sentenced to 25 years in prison after he once bragged about being a drug dealer.

Bert Kenneth Shepard was arrested in November of 2013 after the Shelby County Drug Task Force bought meth from him.

24-Hour News 8’s news partners at the Shelbyville News said Shepard plead guilty earlier in the year to two counts of dealing methamphetamine.

A drug raid at a home in 900 block of State Street resulted in the arrest of six other people.

During the raid officers seized 54 grams of meth, worth over $5,000.

Shepard was also arrested for stealing a car, leaving the scene of an accident and being under the influence while operating a vehicle in March provides commenting to allow for constructive discussion on the stories we cover.
