An Arcadia man arrested earlier this year for an alleged controlled substance violation was sentenced last week on a drug possession charge. According to Carroll District Court records, the charge against 39-year-old Chad Alvin Prichard stemmed from a March 13 incident when he fled from an interaction with Carroll Police Department officers in Northwest Park. He was taken into custody following a brief chase and was found with over 18 grams of methamphetamine in his possession. Prichard was indicted in June for second-offense possession of a controlled substance. Last week, he reached an agreement with prosecutors to plead guilty to the aggravated misdemeanor charge and was sentenced Thursday to two years in prison. However, the entirety of the sentence was suspended, and Prichard was placed on probation for two years to the Iowa Department of Correctional Services. He was also ordered to pay over $1,700 in fines, surcharges and court costs.
