A Sumner County man was sentenced to more than 25 years in prison Friday after being convicted of meth and gun charges.

John D. McConnell, 51, of South Haven received a sentence of 308 months in the custody of the Kansas Dept. of Corrections for manufacturing meth. He also received time for lesser drug charges and criminal possession of a firearm.

The sentences are set to run concurrently.

A Sumner County jury convicted McConnell of the charges last month.

The charges stem from an incident in 2010 in which McConnell was found in possession of anhydrous ammonia in the parking lot of an Oklahoma Casino.

The charges stemmed from an investigation by the Sumner County Sheriff’s Office, Cowley County Sheriff’s Office, Kansas Bureau of Investigation and Kay County, Okla., Sheriff’s Office.
