Its 17 years behind bars for a New Mexico man caught dealing drugs in West Texas.

Back in March, 28-year-old Andres Palomares was arrested in Kermit by a task force that included Midland Deputies, Kermit Police and the Drug Enforcement Agency.

The arrest came after a seven month investigation where investigators say Palomares was selling methamphetamines to people in Seminole and Kermit.

He was sentenced in federal court at the end of August.
