Sand Point man sentenced to 12 months in prison for meth and heroin distribution

A Sand Point man was sentenced Monday for distributing drugs and other crimes committed on bail.

Christian Anderson-Nutt pleaded guilty to a class A felony charge for distributing methamphetamine and heroin, as well as separate charges for fourth-degree assault and driving under the influence.

The 23-year-old was originally arrested Sept. 29, 2017 as part of a joint narcotics investigation by the Sand Point Police Department and Alaska Troopers Statewide Drug Enforcement Unit (SDEU).

Investigators said Anderson-Nutt was behaving suspiciously in the PenAir terminal at the Ted Stevens International Airport and suspected he was transporting drugs to Sand Point.

They searched his bag and found more than 50 grams of meth and more than 18 grams of heroin concealed in a Red Bull energy drink can. At the time, the street value of the drugs in Sand Point was more than $70,000.

Anderson-Nutt has been sentenced to serve 12 months in prison. Afterwards, he must serve probation, complete drug treatment, and abstain from drugs and alcohol for two years.
