Three prison terms for drug trafficker

A 24-year-old man with six prior felony convictions was sentenced Tuesday to three concurrent prison terms for his part in the sales of drugs in Carson Valley and the burglary of an airport business.

District Judge Dave Gamble sentenced Antonio Wood to two 10-year terms and one five-year term in Nevada State Prison on charges of trafficking in a controlled substance, burglary of a firearm and ex-felon in possession of a firearm.

The sentences carry minimums of four years and 13 months before Wood would be eligible for parole.

Sentencing was deferred for codefendant Kurt Hewlett, 19, pending successful completion of an in-patient treatment program to address substance abuse and mental health issues and Western Regional Drug Court.

Hewlett pleaded guilty to conspiracy to violate the Uniform Controlled Substances Act.

A third codefendant, Annalyse Klekar, 18, pleaded guilty in East Fork Justice Court to possession of a drug not lawfully introduced into interstate commerce.

She received a suspended 180-day sentence in Douglas County Jail and one year probation.

The three shared a house in Sunridge that was raided Jan. 27.

Authorities recovered 15.8 grams of psilocybin mushrooms, 127 Ecstasy tablets, cocaine, drug paraphernalia, prescription pills and firearms, among other items.

Investigators identified Wood as a suspect in a burglary that occurred Jan. 25 at Minden-Tahoe Airport at his former employer's. He admitted taking the items.
