A La Crosse man will spend seven years in federal prison for dealing methamphetamine in 2019. Thirty-six-year-old Lucas Carpenter was sentenced Thursday after pleading guilty last fall. Prosecutors say Carpenter supplied meth to a friend who agreed to sell two ounces to a confidential law enforcement informant for 17-hundred dollars. The friend met the informant in a La Crosse parking lot and warned that Carpenter would be watching the deal. He was stopped by police backing out of a parking stall and officers say he had a baggie of white powder in plain view. A police dog alerted the presence of drugs in the car and an additional 13 grams of meth was seized.
