According to reports, an Asheville man will spend more than five years in prison after pleading guilty to multiple drug charges.

On Wednesday, Joshua Sherrod Flynt was ordered by a judge to serve an active prison term of a minimum of 70 months and maximum of 84 months in the North Carolina Division of Adult Corrections. Flynt was also ordered by the judge to pay a $50,000.00 fine and $952.50 in court costs.

District Attorney Todd Williams said Buncombe County deputies received a tip about suspicious activity on Sigma Lane in Black Mountain, and upon following the lead, obtained a search warrant.

The search turned up various drugs, including 29.5 grams of methamphetamine and 44 dosage units of oxycodone, which were seized by the Buncombe County Anti-Crime Task Force.

Flynt will begin to serve his 70-84 month term after completing an 8-19 month sentence for possession of a firearm by a felon - a probationary sentence revoked and activated by the judge in court this week.
