A federal jury this week convicted a Post Falls man of possessing 230 grams of methamphetamine that officials claimed he was selling out of his home.

Adam C. Horty, 56, was convicted by jury on Wednesday afternoon. He was charged with possession of methamphetamines with intent to distribute. He was also convicted of being a felon in possession of firearms.

Federal prosecutors in Idaho indicted Horty in September 2018, and his trial began on Monday in Coeur d’Alene. According to court records, Horty was selling the drugs out his Post Falls home. After making several controlled purchases from Horty, law enforcement searched his home and found 230 grams of meth, according to a news release.

U.S. Circuit Court Judge Richard Tallman scheduled Horty’s sentencing for Feb. 19.
