Dealer gets at least 6 years for drugs, weapons


A Lancaster County man will serve at least six years in prison for drug and weapons convictions.

James C. Simmons, 49, of Denver, was sentenced Thursday to 6 to 12 years in prison. He pleaded guilty in January to several felonies and misdemeanors regarding two arrests last year.

The Lancaster County Drug Task Force searched Simmons’ home in January 2018 and found methamphetamine, heroin, a sawed-off shotgun, and a collapsible baton.

The district attorney’s office said Simmons resumed dealing after he posted bail. He was found with heroin and methamphetamine during a traffic stop two months later.
