LAS CRUCES, New Mexico — A Carlsbad man has been sentenced to 10 years in federal prison for methamphetamine trafficking and firearms violations.

Prosecutors say 33-year-old Christopher O. Reza also was sentenced Friday to four years of supervised release after serving his prison term.

Reza was arrested in May 2014 on a criminal complaint charging him with unlawfully possessing firearms and ammunition and using a firearm in a drug trafficking crime.

According to the criminal complaint, officers seized numerous weapons and ammunition as well as methamphetamine, heroin and marijuana when they executed a search warrant at Reza's home on Jan. 28, 2014.

At the time, Reza was prohibited from possessing firearms and ammunition because he previously had been convicted of numerous felony offenses.

Prosecutors say Reza pleaded guilty in the case last December.
