A Portland man was sentenced to seven years in prison Tuesday on drug and firearm charges, the Oregon U.S. Attorney’s Office says.

Christopher James Fleet, 23, was arrested in August 2017 at a known drug and gang house in Portland, according to the attorney’s office.

Deputies with the Multnomah County Sheriff’s Office were conducting surveillance at the home and say Fleet was a drug dealer with an outstanding arrest warrant.

While taking Fleet into custody, deputies discovered a Kel Tec 9mm gun, heroin and methamphetamine on his person. In a locked backpack in his vehicle, deputies found a .40 caliber Sig Sauger pistol, drug records and a digital scale.

Fleet pleaded guilty to one count of possession with intent to distribute methamphetamine and one count of possession of a firearm in furtherance of a drug trafficking offense in May, the attorney's office says.

In court Tuesday, Fleet was sentenced to 84 months in federal prison and five years of supervised release for possessing distribution quantities of methamphetamine and two firearms.

The case was investigated by the Multnomah County Sheriff’s Office Special Investigation Unit.
