WILLMAR -- Two men were sentenced Monday to prison terms on second-degree drug sale charges for selling methamphetamine to CEE-VI Drug Task Force informants.

The sentences were handed down in Kandiyohi County District Court.

Eric Jon Larcom, 29, of Spicer, was sentenced to 68 months in prison and ordered to pay a $50 fine and $1,250 in restitution from his prison earnings. He was given credit for 159 days already served.

Justin Paul Nelson, 23, of Willmar, was sentenced to 41 months in prison and was ordered to pay a $1,500 fine for selling 14.1 grams of methamphetamine to an informant in October.

He was given credit for 132 days already served in jail.

The charge against Larcom was filed after the informant drove to Larcom's residence Aug. 13 in Spicer where he purchased 11.3 grams of methamphetamine, according to the complaint.

Larcom has a prior conviction for felony sale of simulated drugs or narcotics and had a prison sentence executed for a subsequent probation violation, according to court records.

The charge against Nelson was filed after an informant arranged a meth sale with him for $900 in task force funds. The deal took place in an alley along Lakeland Drive Southeast.
