A Collinsville man received a prison sentence in federal court on Monday for distribution of methamphetamine.

Deonta J. Thomas, 29, of Collinsville was sentenced in the U.S. Court for the Southern District of Illinois to 10 years in prison for distributing the drug in 2018. He pleaded guilty in May.

According to federal court documents, Thomas sold approximately 442 grams of methamphetamine for $2,800 to a confidential informant working for the Drug Enforcement Administration at the Casino Queen in East St. Louis on Sept. 27, 2018.
