LEXINGTON COUNTY, SC (WIS) -

A meth dealer in Lexington County was sentenced to 15 years for trafficking methamphetamine.

30-year-old Robert Tyler Geiger received his sentence from Circuit Court Judge Knox McMahon after being arrested during a sobriety checkpoint in August on Highway 6 near Elton Metze Lane. The South Carolina Highway Patrol found Geiger in possession of an ounce of "ice," a crystallized form methamphetamine, bags, and a digital scale.
