A York County drug dealer who was the subject of a two-state manhunt for months was sentenced to 25 years in prison Wednesday.
Charles Cuthshaw Jr., 38, of Fort Mill was caught in August after York County drug agents and Charlotte-Mecklenburg's violent criminal apprehension team found him just over the state line in Pineville, N.C. with a pound of methamphetamine in his possession after failing to appear in court on other drug charges.
Cutshaw was arrested in 2014 for having methamphetamine at his home and has been described by York County drug agents as York County's largest single meth trafficker.
Cutshaw pleaded guilty Wednesday in a case prosecuted by 16th Circuit Assistant Solicitor Jennifer Colton to both trafficking meth and possession of meth with intent to distribute.

Cutshaw previously served time in South Carolina and federal prison for drug dealing. Wednesday’s convictions were for third offenses.
