A South Dakota man has been sentenced to 25 years in prison for dealing large quantities of methamphetamine.

Thirty-eight-year-old Quadiri Ayodele, of Sioux Falls, was convicted in federal court of conspiracy to distribute 500 grams or more of meth, and violating release conditions stemming from a 2008 drug conviction.

Authorities say Ayodele led a drug ring that transported meth from Phoenix to South Dakota. Law enforcement found 100 grams of the drugs at a Sioux Falls motel room and Ayodele was later arrested in Nebraska after police found nearly 300 grams of meth in his backpack.

Ayodele pleaded guilty in January.
