DALLAS -- Two men from Dallas were sentenced earlier this month for their involvement in a drug trafficking case broken up this spring by the Polk County Interagency Narcotics Team.

Taylor Michael Hill, 20, pled guilty Aug. 6 to two counts of delivery of marijuana for consideration and two counts of delivery of a substantial quantity of cocaine. Hill was sentenced by Judge William Horner to 52 months in prison, three years post-prison supervision and ordered to pay $1,778 in court costs and restitution.

Also sentenced was Brandon Keith Simpkins, 23, of Dallas. Simpkins pled guilty Aug. 1 to two counts of delivery of a substantial quantity of cocaine. He was sentenced by Judge Charles Luukinen to 22 months in prison and ordered to pay $497 in court costs.

The case stems from "Operation Whiteout," which resulted in the arrests of three men in the parking lot of a gas station at 5322 Salem-Dallas Highway in April.

Another defendant, Timothy Charles Rivard, 24, of Keizer, pled guilty June 24 to multiple cocaine charges and was sentenced to 30 months in jail.
