A Carteret County man is sentenced to at least ten months in prison on a drug conviction.

District Attorney Scott Thomas says Brandon Elps was originally arrested on a charge of conspiracy to sell and deliver cocaine.

Court documents show he was later charged with failing to appear on a felony charge when he fled the courthouse in Beaufort.

Elps was sentenced to 10 to 12 months in prison for the drug conviction.

He will be placed on two years probation after his release for the other crime.
