SAN DIEGO (AP) - Two men with links to the Hells Angels motorcycle gang have been sentenced to prison for their roles in a methamphetamine distribution ring.

The U.S. attorney's office says David Raymond Garcia and Jason Scanlon were prosecuted as part of an FBI investigation that ultimately resulted in 36 defendants being charged with conspiracy to distribute the drug.

Garcia was sentenced to nearly 22 years in prison, and Scanlon was sentenced to more than 15 years.

The offense is Garcia's ninth felony conviction.

Court documents state that Garcia and co-defendant Michael Ottinger Jr., the sergeant-at-arms for the San Diego chapter of Hells Angels, used violent force and intimidation to control the meth trade in San Diego.

Ottinger was sentenced in December.
