A convicted drug dealer receives his sentencing Wednesday afternoon.
Vanderburgh County Circuit Court Magistrate Micahel Cox sentenced 42-year-old Samuel Newbold to 40 years in prison for numerous drug offenses following a lengthy investigation.
The investigation was sparked by an anonymous tip into the WeTip hotline of drug dealing in an Evansville neighborhood.
The anonymous tip led to the execution of a search warrant at an apartment in the 1200 block of East Maryland Street.
Officers recovered 132.5 grams of methamphetamine, as well as numerous drug paraphernalia items.
