RAPID CITY (AP) - A 38-year-old Mission woman has been sentenced to more than seven years in prison after pleading guilty to conspiracy to distribute methamphetamine in South Dakota.

U.S. Attorney Randolph Seiler says Julie Little Thunder pleaded guilty to the charge in December and was sentenced this week.

Authorities say officers executed a search warrant on Little Thunder's Todd County home in April and found a safe with $1,640 in cash and 34 grams of methamphetamine. The investigation revealed that beginning in 2013, Little Thunder received meth from outside suppliers and distributed it within the state.

Officials say she distributed more than 500 grams of the drug.

Little Thunder was turned over to the custody of the U.S. Marshals Service.
