WATERLOO, WI (WTAQ) - A southern Wisconsin man has been sentenced to seven years in a federal prison, after he admitted possessing almost 40 pounds of drugs.

33-year-old Chad Ruenger of Waterloo was arrested in May, when he was caught with 35 pounds of marijuana, three pounds of hashish, and three handguns. He pleaded guilty in October to federal charges of possessing marijuana with the intent to sell, and possessing firearms while drug trafficking.

In a related case, 27-year-old Josh Campbell of Madison will be sentenced next month after he pleaded guilty to conspiring to distribute pot.

Three men from Fairfax California are scheduled to go on trial in late March on drug possession and conspiracy charges in the same sales ring.
