ELMIRA, N.Y. (WETM) — An Elmira meth dealer has been sentenced on charges related to a 2022 drug bust.

Shawn. E. Urbaniak, 43, was sentenced to 12 years in prison on Sept. 18, according to U.S. Attorney Trini E. Ross. He was also ordered to forfeit $5,311 in cash, multiple firearms, and rounds of ammunition, all of which were seized at the time of his arrest.
