ATLANTA (AP) — Federal prosecutors say a metro Atlanta drug dealer has been sentenced to 14 years in prison. Officials said Tuesday that 43-year-old Otis Henry was a major distributor of BZP — a drug similar to ecstasy — and marijuana. Authorities say Henry was involved in drug trafficking from at least February to October of 2010. Police executed a search warrant at his home in October 2010 and found 700,000 BZP tablets hidden in the walls, behind insulation, in crawl spaces and underneath seat cushions. Authorities also recovered 2 pounds of marijuana, 150 grams of methamphetamine, a handgun and $39,000 in cash. Prosecutors say Henry fled after the warrant was served and avoided arrest for more than a year. He was arrested in January 2012 at a hotel in Tampa, Fla.
