A former police officer in Radford and Pulaski has been sentenced to six years in prison for conspiring to distribute 50 grams of methamphetamine.
Christopher Bond was sentenced Monday in U.S. District Court in Roanoke. The 33-year-old defendant hugged his wife as he was led off to prison.
The Roanoke Times reported that Bond used and peddled methamphetamine from his marked patrol car. He worked in Radford in 2005 and 2006, then in Pulaski until June 2009.
Bond was arrested after a drug dealer implicated him. Bond entered a guilty plea in July.
