By Gary Lloyd

COLUMBIANA — A 39-year-old Trussville man will spend the next five years in prison after pleading guilty to selling methamphetamine in the parking lot of Lowe’s in Alabaster in March 2012, according to the Alabaster Reporter.

Jason Earl Fortenberry, whose address is listed in the 200 block of Glen Cross Drive in Trussville, pleaded guilty to one count of unlawful distribution of a controlled substance during a May 28 hearing at the Shelby County Courthouse, the Alabaster Reporter wrote.

Through a plea agreement, two other unlawful distribution of a controlled substance charges were dropped against Fortenberry, the newspaper reported.
