A Sacramento man was sentenced to 15 years in prison for possessing methamphetamine with the intent to distribute, according to federal prosecutors.

In a search of the home of A Vern Saeteurn, 34, on Sept. 6, 2018, law-enforcement officers found around 11 kilograms of meth, a distribution lab in his garage used for “adulterating and packaging” meth, and several guns, the U.S. Attorney’s Office for the Eastern District of California stated in a Friday news release.

Two of the guns were found to have been stolen from law-enforcement agencies, according to the release.

Prosecutors said four children were at the home at the time of the search.

Saeteurn was buying around 10 kilograms of meth several times a week, the news release added.

The investigation was conducted by the FBI, Homeland Security, the Sacramento County Sheriff’s Office, the Sacramento Police Department, the California Highway Patrol and the California Department of Corrections & Rehabilitation.
