A man from Madawaska who illegally imported prescription drugs from the Philippines is going to prison for a year-and-a-half.

39-year-old Tristan Nelson was sentenced Monday in federal court in Bangor.

He pleaded guilty last fall.

Court documents say in February of last year a package for him arrived at the Madawaska post office with 950 Ritalin pills and 450 Xanax pills.

Nelson admitted to investigators he ordered the pills and planned to sell them.
