Man arrested in Great Falls in drug charge

GREAT FALLS - John Galvan was arrested in Great Falls on Wednesday afternoon and is facing a charge of felony distribution of dangerous drugs.

Great Falls police arrested Galvan while he was reportedly attempting to deliver multiple pounds of marijuana, according to Sergeant Eric Bauman.

The Russell Country Drug Task Force searched Galvan's pickup truck on Wednesday afternoon in the alley between 10th Street NW and 11th Street NW near 5th Avenue NW.

Baumann says no other arrests have been made and the case is part of an ongoing investigation.

This isn't the first time Galvan has been in trouble with the law.

In 2007 he was sentenced for "bribery official and political matters," and in 2006 he was sentenced for criminal distribution of dangerous drugs.

Galvan is also listed on the violent offender registry for an aggravated assault case in 1998.
