A Wolf Point man and Great Falls woman convicted of trafficking multiple drugs, including methamphetamine and more than 9,000 fentanyl pills, were each sentenced to prison terms this week.

Eric Charles Swan, 35, of Wolf Point, was sentenced today to eight years in prison, to be followed by five years of supervised release.

Swan pleaded guilty in March to possession with intent to distribute controlled substances.

Co-defendant Elizabeth Ardell Grace Ronshaugen, 30, of Great Falls, was sentenced on June 29, 2022 to four years in prison, to be followed by five years of supervised release.

Ronshaugen pleaded guilty in March to possession with intent to distribute controlled substances.

Police started investigating Swan and Ronshaugen in 2021 after receiving information of possible drug trafficking.

In November, agents observed that Swan was traveling to Denver and returning to Montana. Law enforcement pulled over Swan and Ronshaugen near Buffalo, Wyoming, and Swan was found to have several fentanyl pills in the pocket of his clothing. Ronshaugen was found to have several fentanyl pills hidden in her clothing and approximately 52 additional fentanyl pills were located in a plastic zip lock bag on her person, documents state.

Wyoming police found approximately 9,616 fentanyl pills, a little more than one pound of heroin, 103 grams of meth, a gram of cocaine, 14 Dialudid (hydromorphine) pills and $9,775 in U.S. currency, court documents state.
