DALLAS -- A Polk County judge has sentenced a Keizer man to 30 months in jail for his role in a drug trafficking case uncovered this spring.

Timothy Charles Rivard, 24, of Keizer, pled guilty June 24 to one count of delivery of cocaine for consideration, two counts of delivery of a substantial quantity of cocaine and one count of conspiracy to deliver a substantial quantity of cocaine.

Rivard was sentenced by Judge Fred Avera to 30 months in prison and three years post-prison supervision.

The charges stem from a two-month drug investigation by the Polk County Interagency Narcotics Team (POINT), with assistance from several federal, county and municipal law enforcement agencies, into cocaine and marijuana dealing in Dallas and Keizer.

The main suppliers were nabbed in the parking lot of a gas station at 5322 Salem-Dallas Highway in April.

Two other men, Brandon Keith Simpkins of Dallas and Taylor Michael Hill of Dallas, remain in Polk County Jail on drug charges.
