CASPER, Wyo. (AP) — A Wyoming woman who pleaded guilty to her role in a drug-related crime spree has been sentenced to 20 years in federal prison.

U.S. District Judge Scott Skavdahl sentenced Santana Keener on Thursday to 20 years in prison for conspiracy to distribute drugs, aiding and abetting a carjacking and a firearms charge.

Keener was arrested in June by officers investigating drug trafficking. Keener was driving when officers initiated a pursuit.

Her co-defendant, Christopher Eads, shot at pursuing officers, assaulted a woman, stole her car, assaulted a Glenrock police officer and stole his car, abandoned it and stole another car, leading officers on a pursuit that ended in a standoff in Casper.

Eads faces sentencing in March on six felonies including drug and firearms charges, assaulting an officer and carjacking.
